FILE - In this May 31, 2011, file photo former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, left, shakes hands with New Hampshire state Rep. Thomas Howard before touring Rugar Firearms in Newport, N.H. Santorum is set to formally announce on Monday, June 6, 2011, he is seeking the Republican party's presidential nomination.

— Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rich Santorum says he's running for president.

Appearing on ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday morning, Santorum said, "We're in it to win it."

The former No. 3 Republican in the Senate, Santorum has been a favorite among the GOP's anti-abortion rights bloc and has been identified with a number of causes embraced by social conservatives.

In his network interview, Santorum appeared in front of a banner-draped setting in Somerset, Pa., where he will make the formal announcement later Monday. Santorum used his brief appearance to criticize President Barack Obama's foreign policy, saying among other things he believes Obama has gone too easy on Iran, which is suspected of trying to obtain nuclear weapons.

From PolitiFact: "A third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion, because one in three pregnancies end in abortion." - March 29th, 2011. Rated False: Flawed math and a questionable leap of logic

"Any child born prematurely, according to the president, in his own words, can be killed." - March 7th, 2011. Rated Pants-On-Fire: Disagreement taken to an extreme

These are his only two ratings. Granted, generally people have to ask for speeches and interviews to be rated, so we should see more coming in the days ahead since he has now thrown his hat in the ring.
