TULSA (KFAQ) Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum made a campaign stop in Tulsa, speaking to an estimated crowd of more than 4,000 at the Mabee Center on the Oral Roberts University campus.
The former Pennsylvania senator said he is the true Conservative in the race and asked Oklahoma voters for their support.
Earlier in the day he spoke at an event in Oklahoma City.

4,000? That’s awesome. Sounds like he is catching fire.
I didn't even know the guy was in T-Town......
We took a homeschool fieldtrip to his campaign stop. The crowd filled 1/2 of ORU’s basketball venue from the floor to the upper seats.
I’m surprised the news report didn’t mention the medical emergency that delayed the start by 5-10 minutes, and brought calls for a doctor to help someone in the audio booth. Tulsa Fire & Rescue called and although we were a bit of a distance away, CPR was definitely being performed on the person, even while they were being taken from the scene. I think it was ORU’s president who eventually stepped to the podium to lead prayers for the person and the emergency works attending to him/her.
The response to Sen. Santorum was good with lots of applause. It was a pretty standard stump speech. After the speech several ORU students, including the president of the college Democrats, offered questions.
ORU college Dims....!?!?! HAHAHA!~!
I was told they were only expecting 1000 and they got 4000. Nice surprise.
