There were some low(er)-key GOP primaries this weekend, in case you were paying attention.

In Kansas, Rick Santorum pulled off a decisive victory over his rivals grabbing 51 percent of the Republican primary vote. The next closest candidate was Mitt Romney with 21 percent of the vote. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul weren’t that far from each other with 14 and 13 percent standings, respectively.

In short, Rick Santorum killed his competition!

The Kansas win further underscores Rick Santorum’s strength as a candidate in America’s heartland with the true conservatives of the Republican Party. If he continues in this trend, it’s going to be really hard for the party to rally around Mitt Romney if he wins the nomination over Santorum. True conservatives are backing Santorum in droves and it can’t be overlooked.

Mitt Romney did gather some smaller victories in the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. He won the three contests and most of the 27 total delegates at stake.

Romney is still killing the game in the delegate count with 444 in total. Santorum has 202 delegates, while Gingrich and Paul have 115 and 66, respectively.
