Santorum Wins Kansas
by

Rick Santorum easily won the Kansas Republican presidential caucuses today, winning an absolute majority of the vote. He looks like he’ll get an overwhelming majority of the delegates too, since at present none of his opponents have received the 20 percent of the vote necessary to claim a share of the delegates allocated proportionally. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul are bunched very closely together in that order.

The liberal author Thomas Frank once wrote a book attacking Kansas for supposedly allowing its social conservatism to override its economic interests. I’m sure this will make a nice op-ed for him.

UPDATE: When the final votes were counted, Romney did manage to break away from Gingrich and Paul. He won just shy of 21 percent of the vote, giving him an estimated seven delegates to Santorum’s 33.
