Romney Wins Arizona And Michigan

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:13 PM CDT
While Texas will be
absent from this year’s Super Tuesday primaries, ten states are up for
grabs. Now Mitt Romney heads to the campaign trail with two more
victories.



Mitt Romney moves onto next week's Super Tuesday contests with renewed momentum.



“What a night,” Romney said.



Tuesday night was two for two. He won the primary in Arizona and narrowly defeated Rick Santorum in Michigan.



Romney said, “We didn’t win by a lot, but we won by enough and that’s all that counts.”



With two more states in the win column, Romney is refocusing his efforts on defeating President Obama.



“In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of
reelection. If there is one thing we can’t afford, it’s four years of
Barack Obama with nothing to answer to.”



Rick Santorum finished in second place in both states.  His campaign
says the tight race in Michigan proves this is a two man race.



Santorum stated, “A month ago they didn’t know who we were but they do now.”



One of the biggest issues for voters was a candidates's ability defeat
President Obama. But, recent polls shows in a head to head match up here
in Michigan the President would beat Mitt Romney .



Newt Gingrich bypassed Michigan and Arizona to get a jump start on the
ten states in play on Super Tuesday. He's looking for Georgia to be his
first win since South Carolina in January.



“The odds are pretty good we’re going to carry Georgia,” said Gingrich.



Ron Paul hasn't won a state yet, but said, “We’re still winning a lot of delegates and that’s what counts”.



The GOP candidates have to win 1,144 delegates to clinch the nomination. Mitt Romney leads that race.



Ten states compete in next week’s contests and there are more than 400 delegates up for grabs.Romney Wins Arizona And Michigan
