GOP candidates chew through Wisconsin

The national political scene is part of my daily life here at CNN. We monitor the top contenders’ moves hourly and some poor sod has to put together a list of where they’ll be when. I couldn’t help but notice that for today, March 30, there’s a common thread - food.

Eating on the campaign trail can be strategic, with candidates often using local food stops to gain favor with crowds. This is how the top three GOP candidates will be spending their Friday nights:

At 5 pm, Newt Gingrich will attend a “Green Bay Brats & Beer Rally” in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will both be feasting on fried fish tonight, in Milwaukee and Weston, Wisconsin, respectively. This makes sense for Santorum since he’s Catholic and religiously not supposed to eat meat on Fridays during Lent. Romney, a Mormon, might just like fried fish.

Let’s hope the fish in Milwaukee and Weston isn’t too grease-laden and that all three candidates save room for the obligatory Wisconsin (and campaign trail) staple – cheese.

    They can all stay on the East side of the state, far from us here in Eau Claire.
