Kardashian told the New York Daily News she is impressed by "Rick Santoro [sic] and his daughters," apparently referring to the former Pennsylvania senator.

"I like the family connection," Kardashian said ahead of the 2012 White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday.

Kardashian and Santorum both attended the celebrity-packed event, which was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and included remarks by President Barack Obama. Santorum made headlines at the dinner when he met with Lindsay Lohan and reportedly asked to take her photo.

On the red carpet at the WHCD, Kardashian teased her fans should "stay tuned" to find out more about her political aspirations.

"Stay tuned," Kardashian said of a potential mayoral run. "I always set my goals really high."
