The two GOP presidential frontrunners are leaving no doubts about how important Ohio is to their hopes.

After spending much of the weekend traveling the state, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney will be back Monday, and Santorum plans to be in northeastern Ohio when the polls close Tuesday night.

Romney will begin Monday morning in Canton with a “meet and greet” at Gregory Industries, then head to Youngstown and Zanesville before flying home to Massachusetts to vote on Super Tuesday.

Santorum is coming back to Ohio from Oklahoma for a rally in Dayton In the morning, then one inin Columbus and finishing the day out in Cuyahoga Falls Monday night.

He’ll also hold his election night party in Steubenville shortly after the polls close Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

Ohio is one of 10 states holding elections Tuesday. It’s awarding the second highest number of delegates, and is considered the key swing state.

 

Listener Comments:

It will be a dark day for ALL of us if this man wins. It is not just a Republican or church thing; Santorum has frequently stated that he does not believe a "right to privacy" exists under the Constitution, even within marriage. The Republicans running for President also talk about “their” faith. But if you are not of that faith, you may be a danger to the country. This man will be a danger to all of us. We need to start looking at what is best for the country.
