Mitt Romney Wins 3 States So Far On Super Tuesday

Mitt Romney has won Virginia, Massachusetts and Vermont on Super Tuesday.

More delegates were up for grabs on this Super Tuesday than had been previously allocated to the remaining GOP candidates after two months of voting, according to NBC News projections. Between the 10 states holding primaries or caucuses and Wyoming, which will allocate five of its 26 delegates, a total of 424 of the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination are at stake.

The stakes were arguably highest in Ohio, where front-running candidate Mitt Romney had squared off principally against former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Both Romney and Santorum spent much of Monday in Ohio re-fighting their battle from just a week earlier in Michigan, where the former eked out a win in the state where he was raised.

During the intervening week, Romney has eaten into an advantage Santorum held in the polls; the state was seen as locked in a virtual tie between the two candidates by the end of Monday.

    This is why we will be paying 8 dollars a gallon if Obimbo was elected; ■Jan. 7, 2010 – The Obama administration announces new bureaucratic hurdles to American energy production that Secretary Salazar admitted “could add delays to the leasing and drilling process.” Gas is $2.67 a gallon. ■March 31, 2010 – Instead of opening new areas to energy exploration and development, President Obama blocks deep-ocean energy production on 60 percent of America’s Outer Continental Shelf. Gas is $2.80 a gallon. ■Dec. 1, 2010 – The president re-imposes and expands the moratorium on offshore energy production. Gas is $2.86 a gallon. ■Jan. 2, 2011 – TIME reported that the Obama administration issued the first in a series of regulations on January 2 designed to unilaterally impose a national energy tax. Gas is $3.05 a gallon. ■May 5, 2011 – The White House issues a formal statement opposing House-passed Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act and Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act, legislation designed to jumpstart [sic] American energy production, address rising gas prices, and help create new jobs. Gas is $3.96 a gallon. ■June 21, 2011 – The White House opposes the House-passed Jobs & Energy Permitting Act that would unlock an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil and 132 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Gas is $3.65 a gallon. ■Nov. 8, 2011 – The Obama Administration releases a plan for a five-year moratorium on offshore energy production, placing “some of the most promising energy resources in the world off-limits,” according to the House Natural Resources Committee. Gas is $3.42 a gallon. ■Jan. 18, 2012 – President Obama rejects the bipartisan Keystone XL pipeline and the more than 20,000 jobs that would come with it. Gas is $3.39 a gallon, and rising faster and earlier than ever before.

      Gas production is presently higher than it has been in 25 years! Consumption is down! We are drilling more than ever! Thousands of acres of drilling sites which have been approved are sitting with no drilling while you point to others! Obama has increased everything that we have control over-period! The rest is speculators and concern over the middle east. Now, the GOP candidates want to send our troops into Iran for another unpaid for war? You people are crazy!

    There was nothing super about Lee Massachusetts on Tuesday, empty voting booths everywhere. "We're all sitting here trying to figure out why aren't they coming out," said Lee Town Clerk Suzanne Scarpa. Scarpa said when you add up all the equipment and people Election Day costs Lee about $4,000. However, only 345 out of 3,800 registered voters came out to cast their ballots. However, keep in mind in the 2008 Presidential Election 3,100 people voted in the same precinct.
