Rick Santorum Wins Colorado; Romney Far From Inevitable

Rick Santorum is proving  the most electable GOP candidate in 2012 and is quickly gaining the inside track to becoming the 2012 republican nominee. Mitt Romney took a hard Santorum right to the chin in as Colorado  as conservative voters are coalescing behind Rick Santorum. While Rick’s win in Colorado was not by the ultra wide margins that we saw in Missouri and Minnesota, it may be the most convincing win for Santorum,  in a state the Romney needed oh so very badly. Rick’s no longer  the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney, he’s the conservative alternative to Barack Husein Obama.

Rick Santorum 26,614 – 40.31 percent
Mitt Romney 23,012 – 34.85 percent
Newt Gingrich 8,445 – 12.79 percent
Ron Paul 7,759 – 11.75 percent

“Rick Santorum’s narrow win over Mitt Romney stunned political analysts who had expected Romney to repeat his 2008 victory in the state. But Santorum’s Colorado strategy – intense personal outreach to tea party groups and religious leaders – paid off handsomely, giving him a three-state sweep Tuesday.”

You can see a bit of local Colorado political analysis in the video included in this election story by Kristen Wyatt of AP over at the CBS Denver website. This caps the big three state sweep and is surely a turning point in the 2012 GOP race. No longer is Mitt Romney inevitable…some of us already knew this…it was not that hard to figure out when the Mittser could not get past Mr. McCain 4 short years ago. He may be the big spender and the media darling but Mitt has clearly shown he has a huge electability problem…he keeps that proving gain, county by county, state by state.
