Rick Santorum is scheduled to speak during the Texas Republican Party’s convention. But if you want to hear from the former presidential candidate, you better buy a ticket soon. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Santorum’s speech at the annual convention Gala Banquet will not be open to the media.


"Santorum is the main attraction at the June 8 Gala Banquet, a private party fundraiser at the convention, that at least for now will be reserved for delegates, alternates and those who buy tickets to the event at the Fort Worth Convention Center. "There has never been media availability at the state party’s premier banquet," said Chris Elam, the state party’s communications director," Star-Telegram reporter Anna M. Tinsley writes.

The Star-Telegram article says RPT officials are talking to Santorum’s people to see if he wants to make himself available to the media. According to the party’s website tickets cost $200 each and are selling fast.
