CAN­DI­DATE TRACKER

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Rick San­to­rum will revel in the friendly ter­ri­tory of Louisiana for just a spell this week­end. He’ll fire a few at a shoot­ing range in Oua­chita Parish and whoop it up at Rally for Rick gath­er­ings in Shreve­port and Pineville be­fore de­part­ing for a sin­gle stop in Penn­syl­va­nia — and five more in Wis­con­sin in the next 48 hours.

An un­daunted Ron Paul also jour­neys to the Pel­i­can State for rau­cous ral­lies at col­lege cam­puses in Pineville and Ham­mond. Mr. Paul does not ap­pear poised to drop out of the White House derby any­time soon, ei­ther. He’ll host a pri­vate fundraiser in a swanky Bel Air, Calif., home at $2,500 a plate with Nas­sim Ni­cholas Taleb, au­thor of the 2007 best-seller “The Black Swan,” which aptly pre­dicted the com­ing eco­nomic cri­sis. The date? May 1.

Also un­daunted, Newt Gin­grich will pre­side over 10 events in Louisiana be­fore he, too, departs to cam­paign in Penn­syl­va­nia. Mitt Rom­ney has a hand­ful of meet-and­greets sched­uled in Louisiana, then roars off for a fundraiser in Red­wood, Calif.
