Many Republican voters went to the polls on Super Tuesday. Today is the most crucial day for the Republican presidential campaign race as 10 states had contests for the right to challenge President Obama in the Election of 2012 in November. Front runner Mitt Romney looks to extend his lead in the polls while Rick Santorum is trying to make it a tight race between the two candidates.
Through out the country, voters are trying to decide on who will pose the biggest threat to Barack Obama in this year's election.
After winning a close race in the Michigan primary, Mitt Romney looks to cement his name as the Republican nominee with a win in a vital state, Ohio. A win in Ohio for Romney could be a very big one for Romney's chances to get the nomination. Ohio is an important state because it will show who is the strongest nominee for the election, according to Yahoo News.
Romney and Santorum are in a close race in the Buckeye state. Both of the nominees try to state why they are the right guy for the election.
Romney said that he is the only person who can fix the economy "because I've actually been in it," while Santorum tried to state concern about Romney's conservative tactics, according to The Washington Post.
Ohio is not necessarily going to give the two front runners the nomination, but it is the most crucial state to win on super Tuesday, according to Fox News. Romney, as of now, does have a slight advantage over Santorum in Ohio because unlike every other contest before Super Tuesday, Ohio is also having primary elections for state, congressional and local level offices along with some ballot initiatives, according to Fox News.
A win in Ohio for Romney on Super Tuesday could make him the clear favorite for the Republican nominee while a win for Santorum can make it a much more interesting battle between the two in the future.
