Candy Hearts — Political Figure Valentines

Mitt Romney got a jump start on the holiday, starting to hand out these hearts to the conservative base as early as last week’s CPAC:

Rick Santorum was in Washington state yesterday, where he was the second biggest political story, handing out these heartfelt candies:

Should Callista be worried:

Rep. Ron Paul took some time out to express his love for us, but he is never one to get off message for long:

Finally, NJ Gov. Chris Christie expressed his cuddly side:
