Rick Santorum says Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have 'serious problems'

OKEECHOBEE, Fla. - Fresh off Monday night's debate in Tampa, Rick Santorum arrived at Okeechobee's Recreation Outreach Center to a standing ovation

He told his supporters he's the candidate most like them -- down-to-earth -- a family man -- with family values.
He called last night's debate a "success" and says that front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have "serious problems" as candidates.

Santorum says that the negative sparring between the front-runners strengthens his candidacy.

The former senator says he should stand out to voters as a clear-cut conservative. "Are you benefiting from the sparring between Gingrich and Romney? Well I think it shows the flaws of the two candidates, both of them have serious problems, both from the standpoint of policy as well as background, we don't come with that baggage."

Just one week from Florida's primary -- Santorum also tackled the tumultuous housing market.

As he left Santorum urged his supporters to vote  early.
