— BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The winner of Alabama's presidential primary in March, Rick Santorum, is headed back to the state.
The former Pennsylvania senator will address the Alabama Policy Institute's annual dinner Thursday night in Birmingham. Institute President Gary Palmer says Santorum will talk about where conservatives should look for hope in changing the direction of the country. Santorum participated in the institute's presidential candidate forum in Mobile in March.
Santorum recently said he's open to considering another presidential run in 2016.
Santorum's speech is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center.
