Santorum Hat Trick; Sweeps Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri

On Tuesday, Rick Santorum pulled a hat trick, sweeping Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri.

Nobody can deny that it was Santorum’s night. He swept across all three states picking up not only steam, but all important delegates. There weren’t a lot to pick up, leaving some to question if all his hard work was worth it.

So, how many deligates did Santorum walk away with at the end of the day? From all three states, he only picked up 11. Romney picked up 6. Gingrich got 4, and Ron Paul picked up 5. So, back to if it was worth it.

It is definately worth the effort. You see, many are saying that if Romney was the shoe-in for the GOP nominee, then he should have already wrapped this thing up. He walked into last night thinking he had a chance in at least one of the states, but lost.

Yes, he is leading in the delegate count. But, the clincher is: He didn’t take the swing states! He should have won Missouri if he was looking to solidify victory. However, Missouri didn’t play by the rules and thus they had no delegates to hand out. But, that’s beside the point.

Missouri is a swing state. Colorado is a swing state. Right now, virtually every state should be viewed as a swing state when facing Obama.

So, is this fight for nomination over? It could have been last night. But, it isn’t. It will continue. And, it doesn’t look like it is going to slow down anytime soon.
