Report: Rick Santorum to form organization for social conservative causes

Michael Falcone and Shushannah Walshe from ABC News report that former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum's "big announcement" on Friday will be the formation of a new group that will raise funds to promote the social conservative ideas he championed on the campaign trail:

On Tuesday, sources close to Santorum tell ABC News that the former presidential candidate will be announcing the formation of a 501 c(4) organization that he will use to pursue a set of issues he has fought for during much of his political career.

This first wave of issues is likely to focus on an agenda that includes anti-abortion and faith and family causes.

...

It's not clear yet where the new 501 c(4) will be operating out of, but last month the pro-Santorum super PAC, the Red, White, and Blue Fund, became a hybrid political action committee that will also work as a traditional leadership PAC to push Santorum's message, support his political travel, cover administrative costs and donate money to candidates he supports with similar views. This new issues-oriented push from Santorum could easily operate out of this leadership PAC
