Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum--who is still praying that you won't Google his name--said Sunday that he appreciates any help failed Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin can give his struggling campaign.

Speaking on Fox News earlier this month, Palin applauded Santorum's "ideological consistency."

"I reached out to her just to thank her for her kind comments and said I appreciate any help that she could give us," Santorum told CNN's Candy Crowley Sunday.

"She was very kind in responding and she’s gonna make her decision as to when she’s gonna endorse or if she’s going to endorse, but I did not reach out to her before she made the kind comments about me," he added.

Palin has not said who she will ultimately endorse, but she has also praised former Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I think my personal endorsement probably doesn’t amount to a hill of beans today, at this point in the race," Palin said last week on Fox News.

The latest CNN polls have Santorum in single digits in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
