Hey, thanks for stopping by again and welcome to this quick update.
On the 10th of March, 2012, the Republicans held two more primary elections in the race to see who will be America’s Next President!
Those states were Kansas and Wyoming.
Kansas belonged to Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney won in Wyoming. Guam, The U.S. Virgin Islands and The Northern Mariana Islands all held their votes on Saturday the 10th also, and the delegates from all were awarded to Mitt Romney. There were 25 delegates in total for Romney, between the three. 2 of the delegates should be going to Ron Paul.
It’s estimated that Romney added 39 delegates to his total and Santorum added 36 to his. Romney has what appears to be a commanding lead with 377 delegates to Santorums 146. Newt Gingrich is credited with 112 delegates and Ron Paul has 31.
Even though Gingrich is trailing by a substantial amount, he expects to make up quite a bit of ground this next week when both Alabama and Mississippi hold their primaries. There are a total of 90 delegates at stake on the 13th of March, 2012. This large of a number has all the candidates in Alabama and Mississippi stumping for votes before the primaries are held. At the end of the week, on the 17th, Missouri will hold its primary in which another 56 delegates are at stake. Also on the 13th, American Samoa will award 9 delegates.
So the week of March 11 to March 17 will see a total of 155 delegates awarded. As long as not all are awarded to Romney, we can expect to see this race continue well into the summer!
