Candidates Head To Minnesota
(AP) Two Republicans seeking the White House are bringing their campaigns to Minnesota this weekend. Texas Rep. Ron Paul settles in Saturday for three appearances. The congressman popular among libertarian-minded Republicans is holding town halls and rallies in Rochester, Chanhassen and Arden Hills. He heads home Sunday but will return a day later for events in St. Cloud and Minneapolis. Meanwhile, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum drops in Sunday for a morning-until-night slate of events. His schedule includes a swing north to Bemidji to tour the clothing manufacturer behind his signature sweater vests. Other stops include a church appearance in Eden Prairie and a Super Bowl party in Lake Waconia. Local backers of contenders Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich anticipate their candidates will also work in Minnesota stops before Tuesday's caucuses.
