No surprise: Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has been declared the winner in Nevada’s caucuses,the AP says, supported by a politically-active Mormon base. The only question was his margin of victory.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) has outperformed polls, vying with former House speaker Newt Gingrich for second place. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum is a distant fourth according to exit polls.
Now, can Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum regroup and carry on for the rest of February contests, leading up to Super Tuesday in March?
Campaign cash and organization will be the biggest obstacles from the Romney Juggernaut.
