Knoxville News Sentinel: A Tennessee winner? Rick Santorum’s making a run
…Romney supporter Susan Richardson Williams of Knoxville said Tennessee conservatives are fairly divided over “the more known conservatives” in the race — Santorum, Gingrich and Paul. Romney will take the moderate vote, she said, but whether that is enough for him to win the state remains in question.
