Conservative radio host Glenn Beck asked his listeners on Wednesday to consider Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum because he could be "the next George Washington."

"I don’t endorse candidates, I don't get involved in politics," the former Fox News host declared. "Rick Santorum is a friend of mine, but I choose my friends carefully and I would never tell you someone was a friend of mine if I didn’t have great respect for them."

"People ask me all the time, ‘who is out there?’ I tell them the same thing, I don’t trust any of them, but if I had to trust the reins of power with one person that is currently in this field and, because I think the next president has got to be Abraham Lincoln," he continued.

"The temptation and the pressure is going to be absolutely enormous. If there is one guy out there that is the next George Washington, the only guy that I could think of is Rick Santorum. I would ask that you would take a look at him."

By the end of the day, Santorum had emailed the video to supporters, asking them to donate at least $30 to his struggling campaign.
