Speculation that Rick Santorum may drop out of the presidential race soon is growing, and confusion among some campaign staffers has done little to dampen that view.

Santorum met Thursday with top conservatives to discuss what the campaign could do to right its course, a meeting his top aides insisted was about how to find a path to victory and not whether he should drop out.

The campaign also announced he would take a four-day hiatus for Easter weekend, the first time he’s taken a day off the campaign trail since a three-day break on Christmas. Santorum is a devout Catholic but some saw the extended break as a sign that he may be reassessing his path forward.
