Rick Santorum will be getting Secret Service protection beginning Tuesday, a campaign aide said on Monday.

A Newt Gingrich campaign aide who asked not to be named confirmed that the Gingrich campaign requested Secret Service protection last week as well. The campaign was awaiting word on whether the request would be granted. The aide was unable to give more details.

Ron Paul has not requested protection. He has said before that he would not ask for Secret Service protection before he was president because it would be a waste of taxpayer money.
