If you did not know better you would think that Republican voters are less then impressed by Mitt Romney. Last Tuesday night Romney has lost all three recent state cacsues to Rick Santorum and came in behind Ron Paul in Minnesota. This has upended the race for the Republican nomination.
race see-sawed throughout the night until 11 p.m., when Colorado GOP
chairman Ryan Call declared Santorum the winner. Santorum beat Mitt Romney 40
percent to 35 percent with 99 percent of precincts reporting. "This is a major upset," said Denver-based political analyst Floyd Ciruli. "Definitely, there is a new story now."
Romney, who easily won Colorado's Republican contest in 2008 with 60
percent of the vote, acknowledged in his speech from the Auraria campus
his new challenger. Romney said "This was a good night for Rick Santorum, but I still expect to become the nominee."
