Super Tuesday Results: Mitt Romney Pulls Ahead, But Republican Race to Continue on

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appeared to pull off a narrow win in Ohio on Super Tuesday but lost several other states to challenger Rick Santorum.

The day of 10 primaries and caucuses produced no knockout punch, rather another split verdict that overshadowed Romney’s claim of collecting the most delegates.

Romney remains ahead in the delegate count, and thus the race for the nomination, but any hopes of asserting himself as the inevitable nominee fell short again.

Far from bringing more clarity to the GOP presidential race as some in the party had hoped, Tuesday’s elections gave every candidate cause to keep driving forward.

Newt Gingrich won a definitive victory in Georgia. Santorum won in Tennessee, North Dakota and Oklahoma. Ron Paul even posted several second-place finishes.

Romney won Massachusetts, where he served as governor; Virginia, where neither Gingrich nor Santorum qualified for the ballot; and Vermont, Idaho and Alaska.

In Ohio, The Associated Press named Romney the winner early this morning, though some news outlets have not called it yet, and Santorum has not conceded.

Regardless of that outcome, Ohio's tight race and his defeats elsewhere show continuing vulnerabilities for Romney on both geographic and ideological grounds.

Even with most people operating under the assumption that he remains the most likely GOP nominee, he has nonetheless lost states across several regions.

Just the same, he's winning. With 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination, Romney has 332 delegates to Santorum’s 139, Gingrich's 73 and Paul's 35.

@The Middle Majority, thank you for catching my error. I believe it may have been a different outcome if all of them were on the ballot. The Republican party is so divided. I agree with previous blogger's, they need to put their money behind one candidate.

Republican Outrage - I believe that was a typo for you as only 10,000 signatures were required. Why do Santorum, Gingrich and their fans cry and whine when they had the same opportunity as Paul or Romney at getting the signatures. The fact is that they do not have enough national support or finance to carry the nomination much less compete against the well organized and financed campaign of Barack Obama. Don't we want a President that is smart enough to be organized enough and financed enough to get the job done? Why would we even consider nominating someone who just limps along not planning far enough ahead to the end. A president has to be a lot more forward thinking then Santorum or Gingrich have shown. Romney is best prepared for this job. The only "other than Romney" candidate with this regard would be Ron Paul. Santorum and Gingrich should drop out and let Paul and Romney finish it out.
