It's MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning.
Several factors may affect your thinking as you decide how important last night's voting was. Turnout was low, and no convention delegates were awarded as Missouri held a primary, and Minnesota and Colorado held caucuses.
MONTAGNE: Then again, nobody awarded delegates when Iowa voted, either. The fact is, people voted, and Rick Santorum won all three states.
Rick Santorum has dealt Mitt Romney's campaign a stunning blow by pulling off a trio of wins in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado. In Colorado, with 99% of the precincts reporting as of early Wednesday morning, Santorum had 40% of the vote, compared with Romney's 34%, with Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul in a distant third and fourth.
