VIDEO: Santorum Visits St. Charles County

Hundreds of local supporters packed the auditorium at St. Charles Community College on Monday to hear the republican presidential hopeful's speech.

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum made an unexpected campaign stop at on Monday afternoon.

The former Pennsylvania senator drew a crowd of around 500 area residents who heard Santorum speak about the importance of small businesses, and keeping American manufacturers competitive.

Santorum also spoke about overhauling the education system that he said is failing America, because it is run by big government rather than  state and local governments that know their communities needs.

At the end of the speech, Patch caught up with a few people who shared their reactions.

Watch the video above to hear what they had to say.

Without Patch I wouldn't have even known Santorum was coming to Missouri. Thanks for your coverage.
