Rick Santorum Quotes & Unforgettable Moments (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Former Pennsylvania senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been a consistent champion of ultra-conservative stances on both social and fiscal issues throughout his political career.

In his latest presidential campaign, Santorum, a favorite among social conservatives, has continued his penchant for raising eyebrows with his extreme views on same-sex marriage and abortion. In the past, he's been such an opponent to equal rights that gay rights advocate Dan Savage fought back by turning the presidential candidate's last name into a neologism for gay sex. (HuffPost's Jason Linkins has more on Santorum's famous "Google problem.")

Santorum announced his bid for the presidency in June of this year, declaring he's "in it to win it." However, he has consistently struggled to perform in polls and is running low on cash.

We've compiled the most unforgettable moments from Santorum's 2012 campaign thus far. Take a look:
