Republican Delegate Count 2012

Republican Delegate Count 2012, The Republican presidential contest rumbled into Puerto Rico Wednesday as a two-man race, with Rick Santorum nipping more aggressively at Mitt Romney’s heels after again frustrating the front-runner in Southern primaries.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, with little to show for pinning his hopes on the South, nonetheless vowed to stay in. His deputy campaign manager outlined a strategy aimed at denying Romney a clean win before the Republican convention in August and making Gingrich’s case to delegates along the way.
But after winning Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, Santorum called for the party’s faithful to unite behind him alone.
“Now is the time to pull together,” Santorum declared to conservatives in Lafayette, La. “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 delegate race, 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.”
