By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Republicans, Romney, Santorum

He had a good run, but he just couldn’t pull it off. No surprise there. The real surprise was that he lasted this long.

Santorum Wins Oklahoma, Tennessee; Poised To Win Ohio

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Ohio, Oklahoma, Santorum, Tennessee

He keeps racking up those important working class GOP strongholds and swing states. I can’t state how important the Ohio win is to the Santorum campaign.

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Newt, Republicans, Romney, Ron Paul, Santorum

So looks like Romney racked up some early, easy wins tonight, but if I’m in the Romney camp…I’m not a happy camper. Why?

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Debates, News, Santorum

[credit: AP photo] So, there it is; Rick Santorum is toast. Let me explain why. During last night’s CNN debate, when talking about the No Child Left Behind Act, Santorum cracked this gem: I voted for that.
