Santorum wins North Dakota caucuses

Rick Santorum won the North Dakota caucuses on Super Tuesday.

CNN projected Santorum as the winner shortly after 10 p.m. ET, an hour after the caucuses ended.

North Dakota didn't receive as much attention as other nine Super Tuesday states. Mitt Romney and Santorum visited the state once, according to the Associated Press. Ron Paul, on the other hand, visited multiple time and seemed like a good fit for the libertarian Republican: the state leans heavily toward independents. Paul, who drew large crowds of Tea Partiers there, decided to spend the evening of Super Tuesday in North Dakota.

The state has a total of 28 delegates which are awarded at a state convention on a proportional system.

North Dakota gets extra delegates because it is reliably Republican in presidential elections. The last time a Democrat won there was LBJ in 1964. There are just a handful of states which can make that claim, all in the Great Plains or Rocky Mountains.

Even the deep south which voted for Goldwater has the stench of Jimmy Carter lingering from 1976.

It’s “Super Tuesday,” only Romney and Gingrich can emerge to challenge Obama
