The Red White and Blue Fund, the super PAC backing Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, has gone quiet 18 days before the all-important Pennsylvania primary.

There is "nothing to announce at the moment" on spending by the super-PAC, Stuart Roy, an adviser for the fund told The Hill. "Maybe something next week."

The former Pennsylvania senator himself met with top conservative leaders Thursday to plot his strategy for the rest of the campaign.

Roy's statement may or may not be a signal that the super-PAC expects Santorum to exit the race, as many Republicans have urged. Super PACs often wait until campaigns are at an advanced stage before buying ads — usually attack ads — in a state. And, of course, the Pennsylvania primary is more than two weeks away.

Restore Our Future, the super PAC backing presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, has spent $153,448 on ads in Pennsylvania so far.

Reports of Santorum’s meeting with conservative leaders stoked speculation that he may quit the race. Santorum has begun a four-day break for the Easter holiday. But he has fundraising events scheduled for Monday and campaign events in his home state Tuesday, his aides point out.
