Santorum Hopeful as Romney Pulls Away

This week’s primaries were held in Wisconsin, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

Which presidential candidate got to put a check mark in each ‘win’ column? You guessed it! Mitt Romney…

Winning each of these primaries put Romney significantly farther ahead, and over half way to the required number of delegates to win the nomination (1,144). 

The delegate count so far?

Mitt Romney: 654

Rick Santorum: 270

Newt Gingrich: 137

Ron Paul: 71

Santorum is the next closest contender is this race to the white house, but is the distance between too far? Santorum remains hopeful, and is looking for a win in his home state of Pennsylvania.
