Presidential candidate Rick Santorum visits Chattanooga

Posted: Updated:
With the 2016 presidential election about 15 months away, candidates are already hitting the campaign trail.

One presidential hopeful visited the Scenic City Wednesday evening.     

Republican Rick Santorum was Wednesday night's keynote speaker at the annual Lincoln Day dinner.

The event, hosted by the Hamilton County Republican Party, was held at the Chattanoogan Hotel.

Before the event, Santorum took a moment to talk about his campaign plans and what he hopes to accomplish.  

"I'm excited that we can put a robust campaign together, both here in Tennessee and in Georgia. Tennessee because we did so well last time and have good support here," said Rick Santorum/(R), 2016 Presidential Candidate.    

Santorum announced last month he would be running for the White House in 2016.  

The former Pennsylvania senator finished second to Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination in 2012.
