Mitt Romney won the Arizona primary and was clinging to a small but persistent lead over Rick Santorum in Michigan Tuesday with about half of precincts reporting.

The former Massachusetts governor had been widely expected to win Arizona. Michigan was the fiercer battleground, and Mr. Santorum hoped a victory there would help him offset Mr. Romney's advantages in money, organization and experience.

But Mr. Romney held a lead of several percentage points in his native state, where his father was governor. If the narrow margin held up, it would give Mr. Romney momentum but might not dispel doubts about his ability to unify the party.

With 50% of Michigan's precincts reporting, Mr. Romney had 40% of the vote to Mr. Santorum's 36.2%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 11.5%, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 6.6%.

There’s only a 4% Latter-day Saint demographic in Arizona, and with the higher birth/child rate, even fewer than that are adults (compared to the rest of the population). Maybe you should find a more credible scapegoat.

While not the longest uptime I’ve seen, the server hadn’t had a break in over 1,195 days. I guess it decided to go to lunch.

1,195 days? Is that all?

ONLY 3 years and 100 days? ;)

I've worked in both government and private industry data centers that would kill for HALF of that uptime.

You do good work!

K. We’ve seen an increase in MITM attacks and new variations on Sessionspoofing over our way.

You know what’s going to be funny, when all you guys line up and vote for Romney cause’ you know 4 more years of Obama and it’s over for good, that’s the truth, and you’ll do it, you know you’ll do it. He’s not my choice, Newt is, but I’ll vote for damned near anybody to get these traitors out of office. So, shut the @#$# up, quit yer crying, and get in line, cause that’s where were all headed. Quit fretting and worrying and hoping, it is what it is ...

We are the few that remember her glory, the rest of the American’s are busy on their cell phones, face book, and watching jersey shore.

I moved her from Michigan long ago...It’s always been pretty much a red state except it went with Clinton in 92..I would say I made the right choice moving here.

I would vote for Bernie madoff or Charles Manson if that is what it took to get rid of Obama.

Santorum’s gonna get more delegates though, if the projections hold.

Oakland county’s 30k margin is precisely the statewide total.
