Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will be the first candidate to campaign in Siouxland in two weeks, when he makes three stops on Dec. 5. Those campaign events will come a month before the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses, making Santorum likely the first candidate to campaign in Siouxland in December, although it's still possible another candidate could hop in front of him by a day or two.

Santorum for weeks has led his Faith, Family and Freedom Tour in states nationwide, and the Dec. 5 stops will be in Sioux City, Le Mars and Sioux Center. The former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania continues to poll in single digits -- even though some think he's the best candidate around whom conservatives should coalesce, it hasn't happened.

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared in Sioux City Sunday, but it was for a booksigning rather than a traditional campaign event. Bachmann signed copies of her new book, "Core of Conviction."
