NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Just six days before the Super Tuesday primary in Tennessee, another Republican candidate came to Nashville. Rick Santorum held a rally on the campus of Belmont University Wednesday evening.

More than 1,000 people arrived at Curb Events Center at Belmont to hear Senator Santorum speak. He spoke for more than an hour, after being more than an hour and half late due to a cable television appearance.

While on stage Santorum covered topics including health care reform, which he called "ObamaCare", to creating more jobs and also becoming less reliant on foreign oil. After primary losses to Mitt Romney in both Arizona and Michigan, Santorum said that his campaign still has momentum and that he believes that Tennessee will play a big part in his success on Super Tuesday.

"We were able to go in there an overcome all those odd and come out, now heading into Super Tuesday, with a lot of wind at our back. There's no place that we feel that wind more than here in Tennessee. I think we are going to do very, very well here in Tennessee," Santorum said.

A new poll from Middle Tennessee State University released Wednesday showed that Santorum does have momentum in the mid-state. 40 percent of the people surveyed in the poll said they would support Santorum in the presidential election. His closest competitor within the poll was Mitt Romney with 19 percent.
