Romney Wins Arizona, Narrowly Takes Michigan: VIDEOS


As you probably know by now, Mitt Romney took Michigan and Arizona in yesterday's GOP primary - Arizona with 47.3% of the vote and Michigan by a much smaller margin 41.1% to Santorum's 37.9%.

Said Romney of Michigan: "We didn't win by a lot, but we won by enough, and that's all that counts."

The NYT:

Michigan awards its 30 delegates by Congressional district, which meant Mr. Santorum would either leave Michigan with nearly the same number as Mr. Romney or only slightly fewer. Mr. Santorum beamed when he took the stage before a cheering crowd in Grand Rapids and reminded his supporters of how far he had come.

“A month ago they didn’t know who we are,” Mr. Santorum said, moments after calling Mr. Romney to concede. “They do now.”

As the Republican presidential nominating fight enters its third month, the race remains far from deciding the nominee who will challenge President Obama. A dozen primaries and caucuses will take place over the next week, dominated by Super Tuesday, when more than 400 delegates will be at stake.

Watch the Romney and Santorum speeches and a new DNC clip, AFTER THE JUMP...


Santorum's speech:

The DNC is out with a new Mitt Romney 'Out of Touch' spot.

  1. Who could watch that? I'd really rather die. But it's good news, since neither has a chance in hell of being elected.

  2. Maybe the Pope has some special incantations to help Santorum out? Hopefully his 15 minutes is nearly up. That goes for both of them.

  3. Lets not get too cocky with these moron's we all assume that Obama is gonna win; and I hope he does but we should not get ahead of ourselves. Beat 'em back and beat 'em hard

  4. Umm, I'm pretty sure that we don't need to worry about getting ahead of ourselves. Watch a debate. See the crazies. See if the US public would vote in a Mormon or a man who says crazy things.

    The answer is no, unless the economy drops into the gutter further or these GOP morons get a lot smarter.

  5. Romney's win here is a sign NOT to get complacent the Republican will try and make him make over. Which I hope consists of only a little more hair die and polish...but beware!

  7. PaulR, I'm sorry but I think you overlook the fact that half of this country are Bible-thumping, illiterate, Fox News worshipping, gun-toting Republicans. The chances of either of these crazies becoming POTUS are probably a lot more real than we would care to imagine. America re-elected a moron who was proud of the fact that he didn't speak proper English. Please don't assume that it couldn't happen again.

  8. @D.R.H. - You are exactly right. Anything can happen at this point.

  9. As far as I'm concerned it can continue like this straight through to the convention. Let Romney barely inch ahead while getting smeared with Santorum along the way. When he eventually wins the nomination there will be SO much ....Santorum....on him, with a country so fed up with the GOP circus, that the Obama team will just have to do the final stomping. What we don't need is several months for Romney to drift back to the middle. Americans have the attention, and retention, span of a three year old. 4 months and they'll have forgotten what an actual nightmare he is.

    Let this clown car continue for as long as it can. A win win for us.

  10. He's also aged about 15 years since the cycle started. I can't believe that they don't dye that grey out of his hair. I don't care about it (actually I like grey hair), but until recently he had an impressive mane of fully dark hair.

    Though it wouldn't surprise me it this were intentional, to make him seem more statesman-like.
