Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum had a great night on the campaign trail yesterday, sweeping all three elections held on Tuesday. Santorum rolled to dominating wins in Missouri and Minnesota, and eked out a close one in Colorado, a state that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney had been widely expected to win.
Combined with the Patriots losing the Super Bowl....the last few days haven't been good to Mitt Romney.
Pundits on the networks speculated that Mitt Romney is still unloved by Conservatives... (no kidding!) and Andrew Breitbart speculated that maybe the anti-Romney forces might come to a consensus at CPAC this week.
Coincidentally, I will be at CPAC starting on Thursday.
Santorum isn't perfect, but he is a solid Conservative and I could see supporting him if he survives the primaries. But there is a long way to go.
The person most crippled by last night was Newt Gingrich. Gingrich didn't even come close in any of those elections. His campaign is on life support now.
Santorum bought himself some publicity and momentum with these wins.
Lets see if he can roll that into a chance to beat Romney.
