Work Horse?

So, I got this e-mail from Rick Santorum's campaign...

Our campaign proved again last night that Republican voters want a work horse to take on President Obama. They see that in our campaign.
And I wonder, "work horse"?   Usually I understand a campaign's terminology - even when it consists of short-hand to inflame the base.  But I am totally missing the "work horse" imagery.
Does he mean, boring but tireless?  Is he contrasting himself with Obama or Mitt Romney - neither of which are greyhounds.  Does he mean dependable but dull?
I don't get it.  But I don't get he sweater vest appeal either - so I must not be the target audience.

Oh honey,... I could have told you LONG AGO that you weren't his target audience. You're far too intelligent.
