Another Tuesday, another primary, and the din of several hundred political analysts all reporting on the same poll. Such is life for the quartet of Republican presidential hopefuls, only one of which will actually be in the state of Illinois. Mitt Romney hosts his election night party in Schaumburg. Rick Santorum, meanwhile, stages his revels in Gettysburg, as in Pennsylvania. Newt Gingrich makes a single appearance at Strawn’s Eat Shop Too in Shreveport, La., where the specialty is “fresh ice-box strawberry pie.”
And Rep. Ron Paul? He’ll stage a $350-a plate luncheon at the Burbank, Calif., airport, followed by an appearance on NBC’S “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.
