Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has joined the website World Net Daily as a columnist, the outlet reported on Sunday.

"Rick Santorum—the former U.S. senator who ignited grass-roots conservatives as a Republican candidate for president this year—today joins WND as an exclusive columnist," an unsigned announcement on the site reads. "His commentaries will be featured each Monday."

The conservative site is best known for promoting conspiracy theories, most notably about President Barack Obama's birthplace.

Santorum published his first column on Monday, which argues against the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

A former Pennsylvania senator, Santorum won 11 primaries and caucuses during his race for the Republican presidential nomination earlier this year. He said last month that he is considering running for president again in 2016.
