Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will meet privately on Friday morning in Pittsburgh, a source familiar with the meeting confirmed to CNN.
The campaigns had refused to discuss details of the get together and were trying to keep the location secret. They have planned no press coverage of the meeting.
Santorum aides have said an immediate endorsement of Romney is not expected at the session. Instead, they describe an opportunity for the one-time opponents to get to know each other better and discuss the upcoming general election campaign, as well as some of the conservative policy issues important to the former Pennsylvania senator.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review first reported the location of the Friday meeting.
