Presidential candidate Rick Santorum will be campaigning in Minnesota this week. The former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania is scheduled to hold a town hall meeting at a Pizza Ranch in Luverne, MN.
Santorum's trip comes one day before the Florida primary. He has decided to stop campaigning in that state and start campaigning in other states. He's making campaign stops in Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado and Nevada over the next two days. Santorum took a break from campaigning over the weekend to be with his child in a Philadelphia hospital.
Santorum is the first candidate to make a campaign stop in Minnesota in the lead up to Minnesota's Feb. 7 precinct caucuses. Texas Congressman Ron Paul made a stop in the state in November.
Minnesota's precinct caucuses are not expected to garner a ton of attention from the presidential hopefuls. That's because the party's straw poll is nonbinding, which means delegates at the Republican National Convention do not have to stick with the decisions that are made during the state's straw poll.
Here are the details of Monday's visit:
