Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney only narrowly defeated former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, 41-38 percent, in Romney's home state of Michigan, but handily won the primary contest in Arizona February 28.

Santorum placed second in both contests, with Ron Paul finishing a distant third (though double his vote of 2008) in Michigan and Newt Gingrich placed fourth with only single digits. Gingrich won 16 percent in Arizona, enough to best Paul's fourth place eight percent vote.

At the start of his February 22 press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney offered a tribute to deceased reporters Marie Colvin, Remi Ochlik, and Anthony Shadid, all of whom had given their lives, he said, “in order to bring the truth about what’s happening in a country like Syria to those of us at home and in countries around the world.”--

Another state legislator is riding to the defense of the Tenth Amendment and the Constitution.

On February 21, 2012, Utah State Senator Todd Weiler (R-Woods Cross, left) submitted S.C.R. 11, a resolution calling for the Congress to “repeal or clarify Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.”

On January 16, Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall (left) introduced HB 1160, a bill designed to "prevent any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency or the armed forces of the United States in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of a United States citizen in violation of the Constitution of Virginia."

Patricia Finn (left), a vaccine rights attorney in New York, is being targeted by the Ninth Judicial District, which is threatening to strip her license to practice law and file criminal charges against her.

Finn has garnered a reputation for helping parents to protect their children from vaccines that are viewed as potentially dangerous, and also represents families of victims who have suffered adverse reactions to vaccinations. Among the anti-vaccine community Finn is touted as a hero, but those in favor of vaccinations view her as a villain.
