Romney wins Washington

So Romney wins Washington. He is going to win it pretty comfortably, but second place isn’t so clear cut. The underdog Ron Paul is in second right now, but he is only 300 votes ahead of Rick Santorum and 20% of ruhr votes haven’t ben reported yet. Coming into the day Santorum want expecting a win, but thought he might get lucky and make it competitive. I don’t think at this stage of the game he thought he would still be battling for position with Paul. Ron Paul is the only candidate who spent the day in the state of Washington and his every state approach seems to have somewhat paid off. He didn’t come close to winning the state, but he gains momentum by finishing ahead of one of the front runners and doubling the percentage that Newt Gingrich was able to come away with. Next up is Super Tuesday! Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich are already in Ohio where 66 delegates will be up for grabs. No repub has ever been elected President without winning Ohio in the general election so a strong showing there is going to be important. Ten states and 419 delegates total will be in play on tuesday. Romney is feeling good, Santorum is feeling pressure and trying to apply pressure, Gingrich is waffling along, and Paul is on a mission. Not a mission to be President, but a mission non-the-less.
