Santorum splits with Palin on his pick in Arizona Senate primary

(CNN) – Rick Santorum on Friday threw his voice behind Senate hopeful Wil Cardon in Arizona, who's running in heated primary to replace retiring Republican Sen. Jon Kyl, the Senate minority whip.

"Wil is exactly what Washington, DC needs – an outsider beholden to no one other than the Arizona residents he hopes to represent," Santorum said. "We look forward to helping him become not only the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, but Arizona's next U.S. Senator."

Santorum: Romney hasn't called me for VP vetting

(CNN) - Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said in a Monday interview with an Iowa radio station that his party's presumptive nominee hasn't been in touch with his one-time rival as part of the vice presidential vetting process.

"You'd have to ask (former Massachusetts) Governor Romney who he's considering," Santorum said, but "I haven't been in touch with the Romney campaign, so I suspect that we're not under active consideration at this point."

Santorum returns to Iowa, but not for Romney

(CNN) – Rick Santorum visited all 99 counties in Iowa before winning the most votes in the state's first-in-the-nation caucuses. In mid-July he'll return to the state, though his official schedule doesn't mention any events with now-presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

Santorum's trip was announced through the Red, White and Blue Fund, a super PAC that supported the former Pennsylvania senator during his bid for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. The group billed the visit, slated July 10-11, as an opportunity to "say thank you to supporters, campaign on behalf of several Iowa candidates, and take part in a press conference."

Romney walking fine line on immigration, Santorum says
