Election 2012: Candidates' Kids On the Trail

Santorum, Paul campaigns get family help in Hawaii

By Jessica Taylor | March 13 , 2012

The voters of Hawaii head to caucus sites around the state today to cast their vote in the Republican primary. Alabama, Mississippi, and American Samoa are also voting today. Since the candidates themselves have to be in multiple states to campaign, a couple of them got help on the trail from their kids.

Ronnie Paul, one of Ron Paul's sons, and Elizabeth Santorum, Rick Santorum's oldest child, spent the weekend campaigning in Hawaii. Kid Reporter Jessica Taylor caught up with Ronnie and Elizabeth in Honolulu and talked to them about their candidate fathers.

    Let It Shine

    Let It Shine

    by Andrea Davis Pinkney and Stephen Alcorn

    Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus and sparked a boycott that changed America. Harriet Tubman helped more than three hundred slaves escape the South on the Underground Railroad. Shirley Chisholm became the first black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

    The lives these women led are part of an incredible story about courage in the face of oppression; about the challenges and triumphs of the battle for civil rights; and about speaking out for what you believe in, even when it feels like no one is listening. Andrea Davis Pinkney's moving text and Stephen Alcorn's glorious portraits celebrate the lives of ten bold women who lit the path to freedom for generations.
