Rick Santorum Pulls the Trifecta
by

Rick Santorum has won Colorado in addition to Missouri and Minnesota. Ron Paul finished second in Minnesota, ahead of both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. Gingrich is only a point ahead of Paul for third place in Colorado.

In terms of the delegate count, this means virtually nothing. No delegates are directly awarded tonight and Missouri’s primary is purely a beauty contest. But this is a huge embarrassment for Romney. It also raises the question of how long Gingrich can keep going as the chief anti-Romney. People who were avoiding a vote for Santorum because he wasn’t as viable as the former House speaker may rethink things going forward. No candidate will drop out after tonight.

A brokered convention? I still doubt it. But we still have four active candidates for the Republican nomination who don’t seem to be going anywhere.
