Rick Santorum to headline fundraiser in Virginia on Wednesday

Less than a week before the Florida primary, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum will visit Virginia to try to raise some money to help keep his campaign going.

The former Pennsylvania senator will appear at a reception hosted in Oakton by former congressional aide Bill Wichterman, Politico reports.

Santorum’s campaign did not respond to messages for comment. The Republican Party of Virginia was not aware of the event.

Only former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) will appear on the Virginia ballot on Super Tuesday, March 6. Santorum and former House speaker Newt Gingrich failed to provide the required number of signatures needed to appear on the ballot.
