Mitt Romney will start getting secret service protection this week.
Secret Service protection is being given to the Romney campaign, not because of a specific threat, but because of an increase in crowd sizes.
These decisions are made by the Department of Homeland Security.
Romney is the only "current" Republican candidate with Secret Service protection.
Herman Cain was actually the "first."
