— Paul: California

— Santorum: Pennsylvania
IN THEIR WORDS:
— "He said that he's 'very supportive' of this new budget, and he even called it 'marvelous,' which is a word you don't often hear when it comes to describing a budget. It's a word you don't often hear generally." — Obama, on Romney's support for the budget plan by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
— "I think it'd be marvelous if the Senate were to pick up Paul Ryan's budget and to adopt it and pass it along to the president." — Romney, in a telephone town hall meeting last week with Wisconsin voters.
— "It's kind of the least of the worst, I guess. I did vote for Obama. But ... I think it's time for a change." — Michelle Mueller of Brookfield, Wis., explaining her vote for Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., who dropped out of the race in January.
— "I have yet to find an honest politician who'll do what he says he'll do. That includes Mitt Romney. ... I'm mad at this country. I'm mad at our politicians." — Rick Defenbaugh of Sun Prairie, Wis., explaining his vote for Romney as more of a protest against Obama.
— "Ronald Reagan, who as I recall was not accused of being a tax-and-spend socialist, understood repeatedly that when the deficit started to get out of control that for him to make a deal he would have to propose both spending cuts and tax increases. He did it multiple times. He could not get through a Republican primary today." — President Barack Obama, in a speech to news executives at the annual meeting of The Associated Press.
