Santorum Faces Ballot Problems in Pennsylvania

Though he holds a double-digit lead, Rick Santorum's disorganization may cost him a chance at delegates in his home state.

The Daily: "The problem for Santorum springs from the fact that potential delegates in Pennsylvania run on a primary ballot uncommitted to any presidential candidate -- meaning voters won't know who they'll support at the convention this summer... Romney, Ron Paul and even Newt Gingrich got some of their supporters on the ballot as delegate candidates. But Santorum's campaign officials, who have struggled with ballot organization issues across the country, privately concede that they just didn't have the time, nor resources, to organize their own supporters to run as delegates when the paperwork was due earlier this year."
