Mitt Romney still can’t close the deal with conservatives, and with virtually no money or organization, Rick Santorum wins a majority of counties in rust belt Ohio.  Tonight has been very exciting. Still looking for results in Alaska to report.  Santorum continues to confound expectations and will likely be in this thing for the long haul even though there is probably no path to win the nomination this year.  As much as his extremism scares me, I continue to pull for him.  I would like nothing better than for Santorum to win the Republican Nomination because President Obama would win in a landslide.
