Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) hasn’t ruled out running for President of the United States again.

“I’m making no commitments at this point, but we’re not doing anything inconsistent with running in 2016,” he told Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg on Thursday.

Following his failed bid for the White House in 2012, Santorum founded the group Patriot Voices. He has used the organization to speak out against issues like same sex marriage and the UN disability treaty.

Santorum told Newsmax that Mitt Romney was defeated in 2012 because he failed to embrace conservative principles and espouse America’s greatness. He complained that the Republican Party was now trying to rebrand itself as a more liberal party.

“The same advisors who botched these last two campaigns are now saying, ‘Well, you know, since we can’t win with moderate Republicans, we have to now try to be liberal Republicans to win instead of standing up for the values that made our country great,’” he said.
