Romney, Santorum plan Milwaukee visits Saturday
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Republican presidential primary fight is coming to Wisconsin.
Rick Santorum plans to be in Milwaukee on Saturday and front-runner Mitt Romney is scheduled to come to the state the following weekend, but he could show up even sooner.
Activity is heating up in advance of the state's April 3 election.
Santorum plans to speak Saturday at an Americans for Prosperity forum in Milwaukee. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan are both also scheduled to attend the event.
Romney plans to be in Milwaukee on March 31, either for a fundraiser or some other campaign event. His state chairman Ted Kanavas says details of the visit are still being worked out.
Illinois holds its primary Tuesday followed by Louisiana on Saturday, then it's on to Wisconsin.
