Santorum jumps into second place in delegate race

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) — Winning yesterday’s Republican presidential caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota has propelled Rick Santorum into second place in the race for delegates.

An Associated Press analysis finds Santorum picking up at least 52 delegates, including all 37 at stake in Minnesota. Mitt Romney got at least six, while Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were shut out.

Santorum also won the Missouri primary yesterday, but the party is not awarding any delegates based on those results. Instead, Missouri will award its delegates through a system of caucuses and conventions, starting March 17.

Overall, Romney has 107 delegates, including endorsements from members of the Republican National Committee, who can support any candidate they choose.

Santorum is next with 69 delegates, followed by Gingrich with 32 and Paul with nine.

The race still has a long way to go. A candidate needs more than 1,100 delegates to win the GOP nomination.

NC Republicans: No recorded votes at next session

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Republican leaders in the North Carolina House and Senate say there are no plans to vote on legislation during a scheduled meeting of the General Assembly next week.

House Speaker Thom Tillis told fellow members Wednesday that no recorded votes will be taken during the session set for Feb. 16. Tillis says there’s no need for House members to return to Raleigh except for committee work. Senate Rules Chairman Tom Apodaca said he didn’t expect any votes in his chamber either.

The advanced notice comes after criticisms of Republican leaders who held an after-midnight session last month to override a veto by Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue.

The Legislature would next be scheduled to meet April 23.
