BEMIDJI - The production area of the Bemidji Woolen Mills was packed for yesterday's (Sunday) campaign appearance by Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

The company makes Santorum's trademark cotton campaign sweaters.  Santorum talked about the small business climate in the U.S.

Outside the Woolen Mills, several people picketed with handmade signs denouncing restrictions on who makes a family and stating that "hate is not a family value".

Santorum also made an appearance in Eden Prairie, while Ron Paul attened events in Rochester and the Twin Cities on Saturday.  Paul makes appearances in Minneapolis and St. Cloud today, while Newt Gingrich also arrives in the state to campaign.  Front-runner Mitt Romney is not expected to return to Minnesota ahead of tomorrow's caucuses.
