GOP Splits Up For Weekend Conferences

The different dimensions of the current conservative world are on display at separate conferences this weekend, with most of the Republican presidential candidates taking part in one or the other. In New Orleans, the Republican Leadership Conference is attracting about half the Republican field. In Minneapolis, several candidates will be on hand for the Internet-oriented RightOnLine conference. Host Scott Simon discusses these events with NPR correspondents Debbie Elliott in New Orleans and Ina Jaffe in Minneapolis.
