Take a look at a longer video segment from presidential candidate Rick Santorum's speech he made in Racine County Sunday. Was the reporter being fair in his line of questions? And how do you feel about Santorum's angry response?
Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is trying to distinguish himself as a true conservative in the campaign — in part by comparing opponent Mitt Romney's position on health care to President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

The GOP presidential hopeful visited Racine County Sunday to drum up support for his candidacy. He told the crowd of about 100 that if Republicans want to take back the White House, they need a true conservative, and he is it.
Telling the crowd that he is a conversative and not just running as one, Rick Santorum told the crowd at South Hills Country Club in Caledonia Sunday that nominating a moderate will not take back the White House.

The people who leased South Hills said they were calling it quits because the owner of the property won't give them a long-term lease in November. Now, a former employee will operate the business.
South Hills Country Club will be under new management after the former operators shuttered their doors in Novemember. Nancy Martin worked for the former operator, Tom Jensen, for 13 years. She applied for a liquor license and told members of the Legislative and License Committee on Monday that she planned to re-open the business in March. The Jensen family closed the business and auctioned off everything in the business after the owner, Dan Hintz, wouldn't offer them a long-term lease. The Committee will recommend the license for approval from the Village Board, which will need to vote on the final approval at their next meeting on Jan. 17, 2012.
