(CNSNews.com) – Following his clean sweep in Tuesday’s nominating contests in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri on Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum sent his supporters a letter, making the case that he is the true conservative in the race.

“Before I try and get some sleep, I had to sit down and write you this letter,” Santorum wrote. The letter, which included a request for donations, was emailed around 2:30 a.m.

Santorum mentioned Ronald Reagan, who lost eight primaries in the 1976 presidential bid but made it all the way to the nominating convention. It took Reagan a few more years to become the Republican presidential nominee, but Santorum is hoping for a different outcome.

“I can beat Mitt Romney and then President Obama with the kind of conservative ideas that you support,” Santorum said.

“Conservatives face a choice now,” Santorum wrote. “It’s a ‘time for choosing’ for us. Will we choose another Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, or John McCain? Or will we choose a Conservative standard bearer to inspire our party and America along with it?”
