Super Tuesday has played out exactly as we expected thus far. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has won in Massachusetts, Virginia and Vermont while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has claimed his home state of Georgia and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum has claimed Tennessee.
The closely-watched Republican presidential primaries in Ohio and Tennessee remained too close to call this evening, while the results in other races among the 10 Super Tuesday contests were declared, with few surprises.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the Virginia, Vermont, and Massachusetts primaries, while former House speaker Newt Gingrich won in his political home state of Georgia. All the results were expected, and the races were called by The Associated Press shortly after the polls closed in each state.
But Ohio and Tennessee are the top prizes in this latest round in the grueling, sometimes nasty, battle for the Republican nod.
The Super Tuesday in 2012 is currently taking place today (March 6th, 2012), totaling 410 delegates (17.9% of the total), and is involving contests in: Georgia (76), Idaho (32), Massachusetts (41), North Dakota (28), Ohio (66), Oklahoma (43), Tennessee (58), Vermont (17), and Virginia (49), along with Alaska's two-week-long caucuses, Mar. 6–24.
