Face in the News: Rick Santorum, Paul Ryan

Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum appeared on Sunday's Face the Nation still energized from his victory in Saturday's Louisiana primary contest.

"Even though a lot of folks are saying this race is over, people in Louisiana said 'no it's not,'" Santorum told substitute anchor Norah O'Donnell. "They still want to see someone who they can trust, someone who's not running an Etch a Sketch campaign but one that has their principles written on their heart, not on an erasable tablet."

Taking issue with the Romney campaign's delegate count, which he suggested was based on "bad math," Santorum told O'Donnell that his own campaign is "in much better shape than what the numbers that are out there suggest."

While he acknowledged that recent polls have him trailing in Wisconsin, where the nation's next primary contest will be held, Santorum said Sunday that he had already seen a "great outpouring of support" from Wisconsin voters.

More on Santorum's path forward from The Los Angeles Times, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and The Hill.

More from Monday's headlines: Santorum's remarks on the Trayvon Martin murder, which he labeled a "heinous act" during Sunday's interview. "All I can say is that...there are a lot of people who have very perverted views of reality," Santorum told O'Donnell. "And I think it's hard to generalize from one heinous act something that is - you know, try to make a bigger point out of it."

Read more from Politico on how these comments may differ from other statements Santorum has made on the Trayvon Martin case.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan was also a guest on Sunday's Face the Nation. During his appearance, he expressed confidence that, if elected, Mitt Romney would enact his budget proposal. "He and the other candidates running for President have embraced these kind of reforms," Ryan told O'Donnell. (Read more about the interview from The Washington Post)
