Accessing Variable from Repeater

I am trying to set up a repeater and have certain data be displayed conditionally. This is done by comparing something in Databinder.Eval to a variable I have. However, I keep getting the following error:

CS0103: The name 'SubmitTo' does not exist in the current context
This is coming from the following code:

<select name="newSubmitTo">
<ASP:Repeater id="rSubmitTo" runat="server">
<option value="<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem , "PERSONID")%>" <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PERSONID").ToString().Equals(SubmitTo) ? "selected" : "" %>><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PERSONFULLNAME")%></option>
I've highlighted the offending bit of code. Now, this perplexes me because when I want to interact with this variable outside of the Repeater, I have no problem whatsoever--

<%Response.Write(SubmitTo);%> works both before the <ASP:Repeater> tag and after its ending </ASP:Repeater> tag.

If I change the following

<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PERSONID").ToString().Equals(SubmitTo) ? "selected" : "" %>
to this

<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PERSONID").ToString().Equals(63) ? "selected" : "" %>
How can I get the variable to work in this context? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
