Crisscrossing the country in search of delegates

Washington (CNN) – Less than one week before Super Tuesday, three of the four candidates for the Republican presidential nomination are hunting for delegates on both coasts and states in between as President Barack Obama heads north to the battleground state of New Hampshire.

Mitt Romney visits two caucus states: North Dakota and Idaho, while Rick Santorum begins the day in Georgia and then heads West to Washington, which holds its caucuses on Saturday. Newt Gingrich spends the day in Georgia, a state he represented for 20 years in Congress.

    Couldn't find Romney's campaign event in Fargo, ND on CNNlive. Second day in a row that Romney event was advertised as being available but there was no feed. Could CNN please clarify?

    What about Ron Paul? Why doesn't the news track where he goes and inform the public? Not a single mention of the 4,000 that attended a Washington state rally. Not a single mention of the 1,000+ military salute to Ron Paul at the White House. Not a single mention of the endorsements he gets. Not a single mention that his economics are the only ones that actually cut run away government spending. The news makes me sick in its exclusion of Ron Paul.

    I think my commute time is going to multiplied by at least a factor of four this evening. It was doubled this morning, already, as they ready the road blocks, both real and decoy setups. You cannot tell which is which.

    "...in search of delegates".......

    Kinda like that not-so-funny skit of Bush looking for WMDs at the Correspondent's Dinner?
    These three (not Paul) are individual WMDs who will destroy America if elected, and they are not funny either.

    Interesting how every candidate is mentioned.......except Ron Paul. This whole idea of excluding him from existence is very annoying and shows the bias of the media. Every day.
