Skip to comments.Santorum Looks for Momentum
Posted on 03/10/2012 6:29:25 AM PST by AmericanInTokyo
After winning three of ten Super Tuesday states, but narrowly losing to Mitt Romney in Ohio, Rick Santorum will try to generate some new momentum on Saturday in Kansas with GOP Presidential caucuses in that state.
40 delegates are at stake in the Sunflower State - 12 delegates are handed out 'winner take all' in the four congressional districts in Kansas; three to the winner in each district.
28 delegates are divided up proportionally based on the statewide results; 20% of the vote is the threshold to qualify for that batch of delegates.
Santorum has done well in states near Kansas - he easily won Oklahoma last Tuesday and he had a big non-binding win in next door Missouri - and the state's brand of conservative Republican politics should play well for Santorum.
Ron Paul has been the only other candidate to visit Kansas in recent days, as both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich skipped the state; Romney never made any plans to go while Gingrich set up and then cancelled two days of events.
Gingrich will be working Alabama and Mississippi for the next few days until the Tuesday primaries in those southern states; Romney is taking some down time this weekend.

It’s over there!
No, not there. There!
I’m going in to vote for Newt today.
Very funny title
Suggests two greek verbs in 3rd person plural declension.
Or a movie from the ancient Greek days.
Well I did not compose the title! ;-)
Thank you for your support and for showing up on this Santorum thread to express support. And a relief from disruptiong and not a few people who would actually show up and naysay or taunt or do nothing for their own cause and say positive things about their candidate, but rather bash, and be that low about things. There is hope yet. Much appreciated. ;-) Eagles up and best regards, FRiend.
You are one of the really GOOD ones here on FREE REPUBLIC. Thanks for your loyalty and class, sobriety and respect. Thank you for practicing both the Golden Rule and the 11th Republican Commandment. (Romney doesnt count of course since he is a Socialist).
I’m actually a Newtist, but I can vote for Santorum with the comfort of knowing we dodged Romney! The sniping around here between Newtists and Rickers is indeed regrettable.
Everyone who supports him on this forum is doing their part....
..we're all special spokes in the Rick Santorum wheel that's rolling across our great land gathering patriots & giving them hope!!!! ....(what a word picture that, eh...LOL)
..we each bring our own innate gifts as we lift him & encourage him & each other....
... and we celebrate the COURAGE that he inspires!!! ....24/7!!!!
God bless and protect Rick Santorum!
THANK-YOU AMERICAN IN TOKYO!!!!!!!!

We MIGHT win if we try. We WON’T win if we don’t try!!! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Let us go for the undecideds, rather than get distracted engaging in lengthy debate with those hers on FR who will not change their thinking toward Rick and just want to impede us from reaching out to the fence sitters and eat into our precious time...
