Hawaii Caucus Results
March 14, 2012 by staff
Hawaii Caucus Results, The plodding Republican presidential nomination fight is grinding forward toward Puerto Rico – and a two-man race, with Rick Santorum ascendant and Mitt Romney vanquished in the Deep South.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the former Georgia lawmaker whose Southern strategy stalled, was all but relegated to an asterisk in the contest even as he vowed to stay in it.
“Now is the time to pull together,” Santorum declared to conservatives in Lafayette, La., after winning Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, urging the party’s faithful to unite behind him to beat Romney. “We are campaigning everywhere there are delegates because we are going to win this nomination before the convention.”
Unbowed, Romney issued a statement noting his strong lead in the hunt for delegates to the GOP convention, saying, “I am pleased that we will be increasing our delegate count in a very substantial way after tonight.” Earlier Tuesday, in an interview with CNN, Romney had said Santorum was “at the desperate end of his campaign.”
Romney fared much better in the night’s two Pacific island contests. He salvaged a win in the Hawaii caucuses and won the support of all nine delegates at GOP caucuses in American Samoa.
The race now turns to Puerto Rico, which holds a primary Sunday.
