It isn’t every day that political candidates are asked whether the 10th Amendment allows states to nullify federal laws, but that was precisely the question Rick Santorum faced at a forum here a few days ago organized by a libertarian-leaning group.
To his credit, Santorum did not pander to the nullifier. “We had a Civil War about nullification,” Santorum said with a smile. “I’m not sure I want to go there.”
What are Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul (and probably other Republican presidential candidates), Tom Emmer, Dan Severson, Sue Jeffers, Craig Westover and Mitch Berg and the rest of the Tenthers going to think now?
