After winning presidential nomination contests in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado last night, GOP candidate Rick Santorum is taking a victory lap and raising some campaign cash in North Texas today. Here's a look at his schedule:
9:30 a.m.: The former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania attends a forum with area pastors at the Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney. The event is invitation-only but Santorum speaks to reporters immediately afterward, saying his overnight haul of a quarter-million dollars added to a two-day take of $400,000, according to AP.
11:30 a.m.: Santorum attends a luncheon at the Northwood Country Club in Dallas hosted by Tait and Joy Cruse. The event is a fundraiser and the suggested donation is $250. Radio personality Mark Davis emcees the event.
5 p.m.: Santorum will meet with local Tea Party activists at the Courtyard by Marriot in Allen. The event is invitation-only, according to supporters.
7 p.m.: Santorum will end his North Texas sweep with a campaign rally at Fairview Farms in Plano. Davis is also expected to speak at the event.
