(Newser) – Rick Santorum's request for Secret Service protection has been approved and the candidate will start receiving protection tomorrow, as Arizona and Michigan votes, an administration official tells the AP. Each party's nominee receives Secret Service protection but it can be provided earlier if Homeland Security approves. Mitt Romney received protection starting in January, while Newt Gingrich's campaign says he requested Secret Service guards last week but is still waiting to hear whether he will receive them.
