Santorum The Triple Threat

The Guardian

With last night’s victories in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado Rick Santorum is back in a race that had been contested mainly by the two front runners, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

The former Pennsylvania senator’s recent wins are a setback to the seemingly¬†successful¬†Romney campaign. Up until last night Romney was confident that he would win at least two of the states if not sweep all three. Even in Colorado while speaking to his supporters he told them he was “pretty confident” that he would win the state despite the announcement of Santorum’s two state victory earlier in the night. CNN announced later that Santorum did in fact defeat Romney in Colorado.

Santorum greeted his crowd of cheerful supporters by affirming them that his three wins were not just a speed bump for Romney’s campaign to ignore.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t stand here to claim to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. I stand here to be the conservative alternative to Barack Obama,” he said.

What could this mean for the Republican party? It seems there might still be a contest for the prized nomination seat.
