Tight race down South: Polls show Romney, Gingrich and Santorum are in a close race in both Alabama and Mississippi, which vote tomorrow. And Romney has come under new fire from his rivals for being what they call “weak” – Gingrich called him the weakest frontrunner since 1920, and Santorum says Mitt can’t “close the deal.”
Even though Santorum won Saturday’s caucuses in Kansas, Romney earned delegates in Wyoming, Guam and the Northern Marianas. The Romney campaign says the delegate math is in their favor – Mitt would need to win just under half of the remaining delegates to clinch the nomination. And in next week’s Illinois primary, Romney starts with a four-point lead over Santorum in a new poll.
