Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will visit the East Bay for a fundraising event Thursday evening.

Tickets for the March 29 event at the Alamo home of Ubokia.com CEO Mark Pine and his wife, Becky, start at $125 per person for a general dessert reception; $500 buys access to a VIP photo meeting with the candidate, and $2,500 buys access to the host committee’s private reception with the candidate. The hosts include former Rep. Bill Baker and his wife, Joanne; Realtors Richard and Mary Jo Bedayn; Tea Party activist Bridget Melson and her husband, Mike; Bob and Joan Stover; and the Frederick Douglass Foundation.

The Associated Press says Santorum, a former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, now has 263 delegates, while frontrunner Mitt Romney has 563; a candidate needs 1,144 delegates in order to clinch the nomination. Santorum is expected to have a strong showing in Louisiana this Saturday, where 46 delegates are up for grabs.
