On Tuesday, April 3, 2012 the GOP race moves to Wisconsin, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. In order to win the Republican nomination, the candidate must have 1,144 delegates. According to a CNN estimate, Mitt Romney has 571 delegates, compared to Rick Santorum’s 264, Newt Gingrich’s 137, and Ron Paul’s 71 delegates.
Even though, Mitt Romney is in the lead, Gingrich and Santorum are determined to stay in the race until the delegate limit is reached. In an interview with NBC, Santorum states, “If Governor Romney gets that required number, then without a doubt, if he’s at that number, we’ll step aside. Right now, he’s not there. He’s not even close to it.”
Will Mitt Romney take the vote in this upcoming primary? Will Ron Paul continue bring up the rear in votes?
Stay tuned for updates.
