Just got a call from Rick Santorum’s Illinois Chairman Al Salvi with the news that the waters have calmed in the land of Illinois Presidential sweepstakes.
The challenges that Dan Rutherford’s Mitt Romney folks filed against delegate slates with too few petition signatures will be withdrawn.
In return, the challenges filed by the Santorum forces against Mitt Romney and Ron Paul will also disappear in the minutia of history.
“Dan Rutherford and I talked this evening and agreed that it would be in the best interests of the Republican Party and the voters of the state to withdraw all challenges and to allow all candidates on the ballot,” Salvi said.
Previously Santorum and Newt Gingrich forces reached an agreement to withdraw challenges filed against each other.
