Romney Leading in Republican Primaries, Santorum and Gingrich Stay in Race

After Romney won big on Super Tuesday, his campaign team decided to send out a message to his opponents.

The message made it clear to Romney’s challengers, especially Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, that the race is basically over. Romney’s team argued that mathematically the odds of Romney losing the Republican primaries are very low.

With expected big wins in Utah, California, and other less conservative states, Romney, barring a scandal, is more than likely going to win the Republican nomination for the Presidential Election. His campaign team argued that the only person who gets a better chance of defeating Romney is Obama as Romney continues to spend more money than need be on the primaries.

Romney currently leads the Republican primary with 429 delegates. He needs to reach 1,144 to get the nomination. Santorum is in second place with 169. They are followed by Gingrich with 118.

As the weeks go on, it is hoped that the picture will begin to clear up for the Republicans. Romney’s camp is hoping for some more decisive victories in order to push the other candidates out of the race. And the other candidates are hoping for huge triumphs and massive comebacks.
