AP Projects: Rick Santorum Wins MO Primary, MN Caucuses

The Associated Press is projecting Rick Santorum as the winner of the non-binding Missouri primary and the Minnesota caucuses.

All three of Tuesday’s caucuses/primary – Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri – are non-binding, meaning no delegates will be awarded to candidates directly from these results.  Colorado, which has 36 delegates (33 that awarded through caucuses), will award their delegates at district and state conventions rather than Tuesday’s precinct caucuses.

Minnesota will send all 40 of their delegates to the Republican National Convention unpledged, unless a vote is taken to bind their 13 “at large” delegates at the state convention in May.

Missouri’s primary is non-binding and plays no role in deciding the state’s 52 delegates.  Delegates will be bound at conventions in April and June.  Missouri is also the only state not to have all of the remaining candidates on the ballot: Newt Gingrich did not file for the primary.
