INDIANOLA, lowa (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is telling Iowa activists they can change the tenor of the race for the Republican nomination if they give him a boost in next Tuesday's caucuses.

The former Pennsylvania senator met Saturday with a room full of
activists and a mob of reporters as he opened a five-stop swing through southern Iowa.

He says that if he gains momentum a host of social and economic issues will be in play in the race.

Santorum is fighting rival Rick Perry to become the conservative
alternative to front-runner Mitt Romney.

Also on Saturday, Santorum began airing a new television commercial in Iowa touting himself as a "full spectrum conservative" who has the best chance of beating President Barack Obama.

The same commercial starts airing Monday in New Hampshire.
