Santorum In Washington State Today; Idaho On Tuesday

From WashingtonPost.com - GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum brings his campaign to Washington state on Monday - just as Gov. Chris Gregoire is expected to sign into law a measure legalizing same-sex marriage.

The conservative former Pennsylvania senator is notably opposed to gay marriage.

In his first foray to the Evergreen State in advance of the state's March 3 GOP caucuses, Santorum is planning a 7 p.m. campaign rally Monday at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, according to plans sent by his campaign to state Republican leaders.

Before that, Santorum will meet at an Olympia church with a group of "values voters" opposed to gay marriage. Santorum is also expected to meet with the state House and Senate Republican caucuses, said Kirby Wilbur, state GOP chairman.

The results of the 2008 caucuses in Washington state suggest that Santorum, who is popular among social conservatives, could have a strong showing March 3.

Four years ago, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) took 23 percent to Sen. John McCain's 25 percent in the Washington state caucuses.  That year, the state also allocated many of its delegates through a presidential primary, which McCain swept.

Washington's caucus on March 3rd will begin the process of assigning the state's 43 delegates.

On Tuesday, Santorum will take his campaign to Idaho. According to the Executive Director of the Idaho GOP, Santorum will appear at the Hagadone Event Center in Coeur d'Alene. He's expected to show up sometime between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.

It's not yet known if the event is free and open to the public.
