Santorum Books TN Appearance Ahead of Gingrich’s

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is planning an appearance in Chattanooga next weekend. Santorum led a poll of “likely” Republican voters in Tennessee earlier this month, and plans to speak at a tea party forum.

Meanwhile conservative rival Newt Gingrich has scheduled a fundraiser at a Franklin home the week after, charging $2500 for a photo opportunity. Earlier this week Mitt Romney picked Governor Bill Haslam to chair his Tennessee campaign.

Haslam told reporters yesterday Romney hasn’t yet scheduled anything in the state.

Early voting is underway now; Election Day is March 6th – Super Tuesday.
