    Washington (CNN) - Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney are likely to meet in early May to discuss a Santorum endorsement, his role as a Romney surrogate and conservative policy issues, CNN has learned. John Brabender, a senior strategist for the Santorum campaign, told CNN that Santorum's goal is to have a policy-oriented session in which he tries to find a "comfort level" about the role "social conservatives, tea party activists and blue collar Republicans will play in the campaign and in the Romney administration." Even so, he said, "we are not walking in there with a litmus test. This is...

    Provided courtesy of DefendtheNaturalFamily.com americanvisionnews.comJoel McDurmonMetroWeekly.com is exposing the whole truth that Washington Post would not reveal: Mitt Romney’s campaign tonight announced that it has hired Richard Grenell, an out gay former George W. Bush administration official, to serve as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s “national security and foreign policy spokesman,” according to a report from The Washington Post that did not mention Grenell’s sexual orientation. Grenell served through September 2008 in the Bush administration as a spokesman to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — and told The Advocate‘s Kerry Eleveld as he left the administration that it was his hope that New York...

    - During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted The Fox News Channel, accusing the cable news network that employed him as recently as last year of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight and singling out former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy. I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through, Gingrich said during the private meeting at Wesley College to which RealClearPolitics was granted access. In our experience, Callista and I both believe...

    Richard Viguerie, a veteran conservative activist and top Santorum supporter, tells National Review Online that Santorum is reengineering his presidential campaign. You cant repeat the same behavior and expect different results, he says. Weve got to do things different. Weve got to reengineer the campaign. Weve got to add things, take things out, and make changes. Everyone recognizes that, from the candidate on down. Earlier today, Viguerie, along with a group of movement leaders, met with Santorum at an office in northern Virginia. For over an hour, they discussed ways to revive his bid. We came up with a number...

    Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says Rick Santorums double-digit loss in the Illinois primary shows he is not the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney and he cant defeat President Barack Obama..... Governor Romney had a pretty good day I think he took a step towards clearly proving he was the front-runner. Senator Santorum didnt have a particularly good day, Gingrich said. This is the third time now he has tried an industrial Midwestern . . . state and not succeeded. And I think that the conservatives have to think through the right strategy if they hope to stop Romney....
