Rick Santorum was in Gettysburg last night to watch returns from the Illinois primary. While Mitt Romney would take the contest, Santorum spoke to supporters, once again claiming that he is the only viable candidate to run against President Obama in the fall.
Romney’s win Tuesday dampens some of the momentum Santorum enjoyed after last week’s victories in Mississippi and Alabama, but the scene shifts back to the south this weekend as Louisiana holds its primary on Saturday. Santorum has shown a lead in that state in recent polls.
Following Louisiana, there will be a 10-day break before voters in Maryland, Wisconsin and D.C. go to the polls on April 3rd. Pennsylvania votes on April 24th.
