The Santorum train keeps plugging along making another strong case that he�s �the real conservative choice� that needs a head to head chance to beat Mitt Romney.
NY Times reports Rick Santorum captured twin victories in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries on Tuesday, overcoming the financial advantages of Mitt Romney and the Southern allegiances to Newt Gingrich on a night that amplified his argument that the Republican nominating fight is becoming a two-man race with Mr. Romney.
The triumphs by Mr. Santorum elevated and strengthened his candidacy as the Republican campaign rolls ahead into a state-by-state battle for delegates. An aggressive push by Mr. Romney to try and capitalize on the divided conservative electorate failed to take hold, and he finished third in both states.
We did it again,� Mr. Santorum said, addressing jubilant supporters in Louisiana, which holds its Republican primary next week. �The time is now for conservatives to pull together.�
So far, Newt Gingrich says he�s going to continue. I ask if he can�t win Alabama or Mississippi, where the heck else is gonna win?
