Rick Santorums ballot problems keep getting worse.
The candidate failed to appear on the ballot in Virginia on Super Tuesday, losing his chance to win 46 delegates. He also may have lost his chance at more than a quarter of the delegates in Ohio, after he failed to qualify full slates of delegates in a few congressional districts.
In the coming month, Santorum will face similar problems in Washington, D.C. and Illinois.
His failure to qualify in the nations capital hints at organizational challenges.

Damn, Rick.... FORWARD PLANNING, Bud!
DC is WTA. Show me a conservative Republican who lives in NW and I’ll show you some swampland I want you to buy. This is the more moderate Republicans as Republicans get and still be called GOP. You know that. There was no way he was going to get delegates here.
As for IL, nice try. The 4 CD’s that Santorum failed to get delegates are all tied to the Chicago area, one of which I think is Mark Kirk’s old stomping ground and 3 hardcore leftists, inlcuding J.J. Jr.’s seat. IL has a loophole system where in their GOP primary, the more reliable Republican districts get an extra delegate more while the less Republican Districts (Chicago) get a delegate less. It’s assumed Rick’s strongest support comes downstate in mid/south IL, where many of the CD’s have 4 delegates at stake. He will OK in IL.
Studying the state maps and delegate math does wonders.
Really Rick, just give up. You aren’t a threat, that’s why we keep putting these stories out on you. Just give up. Everybody really likes nationalized health care. Can’t you see that?
LOL, what is the name of that new AbC show.
Wow! Who saw this coming?
If you Santorum supporters really think he can beat Obammy go ahead. I fear that if Obammy dont eat him alive in the GE. He will just go along with the consensus in DC.
I personally think we need someone to shake thing up.
If you think that this primary is designed to help the little guys come to the top, you are deluded. This plan was hatched in 2008, and they are really upset that they haven't installed their man.
Even a casual observer should be able to pick up on the dirty tricks the E-Pubs have pulled to advance their establishment choice.
