WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Secret Service says the next year looks to be exceptionally busy because of the 2012 presidential election and a number of high-profile events.

Director Mark Sullivan told a congressional subcommittee Wednesday that agents will be busy in 2012 providing protection services at six national special security events, including the Democratic and Republican national conventions and the global G-20 summit, as well as protecting presidential candidates.

Sullivan said protective details may be assigned to candidates before the nominating conventions if there are security threats. That was the case during the 2008 campaign, when agents were assigned to protect then-Sen. Barack Obama earlier in the campaign than other candidates.
