Santorum Wins Deep South; Romney Wins Hawaii

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:13 PM CDT
Rick Santorum will
campaign in Puerto Rico today as he tries to capitalize on victories in
Alabama and Mississippi Tuesday night. They were big wins in Newt
Gingrich’s back yard.



Rick Santorum pulled off a southern sweep Tuesday.



“We did it again,” Santorum said to supporters.



He told supporters in Louisiana they'll help keep his momentum going.

 

“Next we’ll come back here and we expect a huge win.”



Santorum won Mississippi and Alabama Tuesday night with the help of very
conservative voters and women. The former Pennsylvania senator says the
results will help reshape the Republican field.



“This adventure’s going to be a two person race, and when it does, the conservative will win.”



Santorum and Newt Gingrich continue to split the conservative vote.
Despite losing, the former speaker says he has no plans to drop out and
this race is far from over.



“One of the tings tonight proved is that the elite media’s effort to
convince the nation that Mitt Romney is inevitable just collapsed,” said
Gingrich.

Alabama and Mississippi allocate their delegates proportionally, so
Gingrich, Santorum and Mitt Romney all added to their totals. But,
Romney still holds a significant lead.



Romney lost both states yesterday partly because he wasn't able to rally the conservative base.



The former Massachusetts is already looking ahead to Saturday's caucuses. He rallied supporters in Missouri yesterday afternoon.



“I need you guys to get out there and vote for me,” said Romney.



Romney will spend today fundraising in New York as he builds his war chest for what could be a very long primary battle.



Ron Paul did not actively campaign in Alabama and Mississippi and finished last.



Mitt Romney also had victories in Tuesday night’s primaries. He also won caucuses in Hawaii and American Samoa.Santorum Wins Deep South; Romney Wins Hawaii
