BLUE ASH, Ohio (AP) - Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum says local neighborhoods "where there are no dads" have no freedom.

He tells voters in the Cincinnati area that those neighborhoods aren't safe and scare away businesses and churches.

Santorum is promising to improve the nation's economy but says that reducing single-parent families may be more important. He says the nation must reduce the number of children born out of wedlock and restore "traditional family values," or any economic recovery will be temporary.

Santorum doesn't say what he'll do as president to address the issues. But he's calling for a national conversation about how to bring families together.

Some supporters at Saturday's rally in Blue Ash, Ohio, say the focus on social issues may be troublesome in a general election matchup against President Barack Obama.
