Rick Santorum Campaign: Maybe It's Time For One-On-One Debate With Romney

A Rick Santorum spokesman floated on Wednesday the subject of a one-on-one debate with Mitt Romney.

In a comment to The Huffington Post's Jon Ward, communications director Hogan Gidley said, "What we were pointing out, we were talking about debates. In '08 when it became a two-person race, Hilary and Obama had a few one-on-one debates. Just pointing that out. I'm wondering if someone calls for that this time."

Earlier on Wednesday, The Daily's Dan Hirshchhorn tweeted that, "Santorum camp starting to push the idea of 1-on-1 debates with Romney, a la Clinton vs. Obama in 2008. 'we've earned the right' 1 aide says."

After winning both the Alabama and Mississippi primaries on Tuesday night, the Santorum campaign is feeling pretty confident.

Santorum's most recent surge has intensified doubts about the future of Newt Gingrich's campaign, though Gingrich has remained defiant.
