Santorum: Where are Romney and Obama?

(CNN) – Mitt Romney should be in Washington, D.C. while the Supreme Court hears a challenge to the national health care law, Rick Santorum said Monday.

"Mitt Romney's 3,000 miles away. He should be here," the Republican presidential candidate said in an interview set to air on CNN's "The Situation Room." "He doesn't want to talk about the issue because he can't on substance disagree with the policies of this administration."

Romney not worried about Santorum, labels Russia No. 1 'foe'

(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Monday he was unfazed by recent ramped-up rhetoric coming from his opponent Rick Santorum.

BLITZER'S BLOG: What to expect at a contested convention

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) – Mitt Romney may be in the driver’s seat right now, but there is still a chance he won’t be able to amass the 1,144 delegates needed to win the Republican presidential nomination before the party convention in Tampa at the end of August.

If he comes up short, there could be a contested convention. That means the delegates actually would have to vote on the convention floor for the nominee.

BLITZER’S BLOG: GOP race will be a marathon, not a sprint

(CNN) - If it does come down to a two-man race for the Republican presidential nomination, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it continue until the party convention in Tampa at the end of August.

Getting to the major number of 1,144 delegates for either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum before the convention will not be easy, even though the former Massachusetts governor has an impressive lead right now.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Millions have already spoken

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) -
Even though the pundits and the headlines say Mitt Romney is only limping toward the delegates he needs, when you look at the popular vote the lines are a little more clearly drawn. The math seems to be in Romney’s favor, though none of the other candidates seem to be thinking about dropping out.

So far since Iowa and including the 10 contests of Super Tuesday, 8,257,860 Americans have voted in the Republican presidential primaries and caucuses. That’s a lot of people who have spoken.
