Romney wins GOP race in Ohio

COLUMBUS -- In a nail-biter, Mitt Romney barely snatched the critical battleground state of Ohio away from main rival Rick Santorum on Super Tuesday.

Early this morning the Associated Press and CNN called the Ohio contest for Mr. Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor’s narrow victory, plus Mr. Santorum’s failure to field a full slate of delegates in the Buckeye State, means Mr. Romney won the bragging rights of the popular vote and a majority of the 63 delegates Ohio awarded on Tuesday.

To get the GOP presidential nomination, the winner must surpass 1,144 delegates.
