AEHQ: Santorum Sweeps

It was a sweep for Rick Santorum on Tuesday night. The Republican presidential candidate won the caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota, as well as the primary in Missouri. 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.

FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports:

Audio clip:

It was a trifecta for Rick Santorum, wins in the Colorado and Minnesota caucuses and the Missouri primary.

(Santorum)”Tonight was not just a victory for us, but tonight was a victory for the voices of our party.”

Santorum upsetting Mitt Romney in Colorado, a state he was was widely expected to win.

(Romney)”I look forward to the contests to come.”

For Ron Paul, a second place finish in Minnesota.

(Paul)”Believe or not we did very well tonight.”

But the night belonged to Santorum.

(Birnbaum)”A victory in three states by Rick Santorum makes him the major alternative to Mitt Romney.”

Newt Gingrich, pretty much a non-factor .
