It's all about the delegates...

“WASHINGTON - Mitt Romney’s victory in Michigan’s primary won’t get him many more delegates than Rick Santorum, if any. It’s even possible Santorum could win most of the state’s delegates.

With 22 of the state’s 30 delegates decided, Romney and Santorum each have 11. Michigan awards most of its delegates based on results in each of its 14 congressional districts — handing out two for winning each district.

Incomplete results in the four remaining congressional districts show Romney and Santorum splitting the final delegates. But that outcome could change as more votes are tallied.

Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were shut out.

Romney won all 29 delegates in Arizona’s primary Tuesday. Overall, Romney leads the race for delegates with 163. Santorum has 83, Gingrich has 32 and Paul has 19.”
