Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is getting Secret Service protection.
That's according to two sources with knowledge of the plans.
A Romney campaign adviser says the Secret Service will provide
security for the former Massachusetts governor starting Wednesday.
An administration official says Romney's campaign requested the
protection. The official says the administration determined that Romney met all the conditions for protection. Those include being a
major presidential candidate who has raised a certain amount of money.
The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security means.
