I’m very pleased by the results of today’s elections in the Republican race for the Presidential nomination.
Rick Santorum, my preferred candidate of the remaining bunch, won all three states that were up for grabs today. He won Minnesota and Missouri by a big margin, and Colorado by a fairly narrow margin over Mitt Romney, but by a larger margin than he defeated Romney back in Iowa.
Today wasn’t the biggest day for the allocation of delegates by any means, but the victories are welcome all the same. If nothing else, it guarantees that the battle will go on for a bit longer, and I happen to think that will favour the more conservative candidates as the less conservative ones will have to spend more time fighting their own records, leaving the more conservative candidates to do what has really resonated with the electorate…fighting Obama and his horrendous record.
