CNN: Santorum sends daughter to campaign in Hawaii

The former Pennsylvania senator broke the news about his daughter while standing on stage at a campaign rally in Missouri with his wife, Karen, and second-oldest child, John.

"John just said to me there is an advantage of being the oldest," Santorum joked.

Elizabeth Santorum, who has become a top surrogate for her father, isn't the first child of a candidate to be sent to distant lands this election cycle.

On Thursday, Mitt Romney's campaign announced they were sending the candidate's son Matt to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, both of which held their caucuses Saturday.

Washington Times: Ron Paul Jr. and John Tate launch Paul's Hawaii campaign in Waikiki

WAIKIKI, HAWAII, March 11, 2012 – With only 72 hours to the opening of Hawaii’s first ever Republican presidential caucus, the Ron Paul campaign held a meet and greet on Oahu yesterday, attended by national campaign manager John Tate and Paul’s oldest son, Ronnie.

FOX: Delegate Game Tightens GOP Race

Santorum dominated the Kansas contest with 51 percent support. Romney trailed with 21 percent, followed by Gingrich with 14 percent. Ron Paul placed last with 13 percent.

The former Pennsylvania senator ended up winning 33 of the 40 delegates up for grabs in the Kansas caucuses. He won another three in the latest round of voting out of Wyoming.

But Romney practically erased all of Santorum's gains Saturday, winning the overall Wyoming contest along with a series of tiny caucuses in far-flung locales like Guam -- racking up more than 30 delegates and once again using the nuances of the delegate battle to frustrate Santorum's effort to build momentum. Santorum still trails Romney by more than 200 delegates.

 

Washington Times: Understanding Romney’s wins and Paul’s losses

WT: Mitt Romney has swept the Pacific with solid victories and 18 delegates from Guam and the Northern Marianas. All that stands in the way of a total Romney grand slam is Hawaii, which holds its GOP caucus on Tuesday, March 13.

The Romney campaign is well organized, highly professional in their campaign tactics, experienced veterans of numerous campaigns and in spite of what pundits allege, extremely motivated and fully capable of beating Barack Obama in November.

Star-Adv: Santorum wins Kansas; Wyoming, Guam, Northern Marianas go to Romney

In the Pacific, Romney won the Republican caucus in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, picking up nine delegates.

Romney won 87 percent or 740 of the 848 votes cast in the main islands of Saipan, Tinian and Rota as the former Massachusetts governor seeks more secure footing as the front-runner in the race to become the GOP's nominee for U.S. president.

Santorum got 6 percent or 53 votes. Paul and Gingrich got 3 percent each or 28 and 27 votes, respectively.

Romney's victory comes after an endorsement by Gov. Benigno R. Fitial on the eve of the caucus. Fitial, who also is chairman of the commonwealth's Republican Party, said he and the eight other delegates will support Romney at the Republican National Convention in Florida in August.

"I personally spoke to every leading candidate for delegate and I was so pleased to hear that each one of them was supporting Mitt Romney as well," Fitial said in a written statement. "Governor Romney understands the important role the CNMI plays in the Pacific Region and is committed to helping us improve our economy the right way."

He said he spoke to Romney on Friday, "and it was clear from that conversation he will not forget us here in the CNMI."

Romney's son Matt and wife Laurie campaigned for him in Saipan. Rarely, if ever, has any presidential campaign team made a stop in the U.S. territory.

Fitial said members of the Santorum and Gingrich campaigns sent him emails last year, but nothing came out of those communications.

Romney also picked up all nine delegates from Guam on Saturday. Republicans on the tiny Pacific island met at their state convention and backed Romney in a unanimous show of hands.

Convention co-chair Jerry Crisostomo said though Guam's Republican National Convention delegates are technically uncommitted, all pledged to vote for the candidate chosen at the state convention.
