God-o-Meter knows John McCain is redoubling efforts to repair relations with the Christian Right, but being called weak on values by former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, an influential figure in the movement, isn’t going to help his cause. Here’s what Santorum said yesterday on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, courtesy of Evangelicals for Mitt:

on social conservative issues, you point to me one time John McCain every took the floor of the United States Senate to talk about a social conservative issue. It never happened. I mean, this is a guy who says he believes in these things, but I can tell you, inside the room, when we were in these meetings, there was nobody who fought harder not to have these votes before the United States Senate on some of the most important social conservative issues, whether it’s marriage or abortion or the like. He always fought against us to even bring them up, because he was uncomfortable voting for them. So I mean, this is just not a guy I think in the end that washes with the mainstream of the Republican Party.
