PAUL: Northern Exposure: “For a guy accused of being an isolationist, Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul found himself surrounded by plenty of friends Sunday in Alaska's two largest cities,” AP writes. “The U.S. representative from Texas spoke to about 1,000 people at a Fairbanks hotel ballroom and followed that with at least 1,200 more packed into an Anchorage convention center as he poured out the message that America must stop misusing its military while putting its financial house in order.”
Paul’s going to be in North Dakota Tuesday.
ROMNEY: “Mitt Romney came under fierce assault from his Republican primary opponents on Sunday as the campaign headed to the crucial 10-state slate of Super Tuesday contests, with Newt Gingrich accusing the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign of displaying a ‘breathtaking scale of dishonesty,’” the Boston Globe reports. “Romney, fresh from his Saturday night victory in the Washington caucuses - his fourth straight win - campaigned in several states and tried to cast his candidacy as being on a winning track. New polls show him virtually tied with Rick Santorum in Ohio and Tennessee, and the former Massachusetts governor rolled out more endorsements from leading conservatives as he sought to shore up support among those who most distrust him.”
“Mitt Romney rolled to a double-digit victory in Washington state's Republican presidential caucuses Saturday night, his fourth campaign triumph in a row and a fresh show of strength in the run-up to 10 Super Tuesday contests in all regions of the country,” AP writes.
Eric Cantor and Tom Coburn endorsed Romney.
SANTORUM: “Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum acknowledged [Sunday on Fox] that he may have misstated President Obama’s position on education when he called Obama a snob for saying he “wants everyone in America to go to college,” the Boston Globe notes.
