“I think that Donald Trump said he was going to energize the base with this pick. I don’t think he did that,” Santorum told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
On the contrary, Santorum said the base was “turned off” by Kavanaugh, a D.C. insider who was part of President George W. Bush’s legal team.
“He is from Washington. He is the establishment pick. He is the Bush pick,” Santorum said, adding:
“It just seems like Trump in this case just bowed to the elite in Washington and I think that’s going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. I don’t think it’s going to be a game-changer, but I think it’s not a, ‘Yeah, let’s go get them’ kind of moment for Trump.”
