Super Tuesday: Santorum Wins Oklahoma


With 1950 of 1961 precincts reporting, Rick Santorum has won the Oklahoma Republican presidential primary, holding off Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich in a tighter-than-expected finish. Santorum received 33.8% statewide, with Romney getting 28%, Gingrich taking 27.5%, and Ron Paul finishing with 9.6%.

Results by congressional district:

1st Congressional District

  • Santorum - 33.4%
  • Gingrich - 29.75%
  • Romney - 27.65%
  • Paul - 8.3%


2nd Congressional District

  • Santorum - 37.6%
  • Gingrich - 30.2%
  • Romney - 22.2%
  • Paul - 8.9%

3rd Congressional District

  • Santorum - 34%
  • Gingrich - 29%
  • Romney - 25.8%
  • Paul - 9.8%

4th Congressional District

  • Santorum - 34.85%
  • Romney - 28.3%
  • Gingrich - 24.8%
  • Paul - 11%

5th Congressional District

  • Romney - 33.9%
  • Santorum - 30.8%
  • Gingrich - 23.9%
  • Paul - 10.5%

The final delegate count looks like it will be Santorum with 14, Romney with 13, and Gingrich with 13. Of Oklahoma's 77 counties, 2 went to Romney, 11 to Gingrich, and the remaining 64 were won by Santorum.

It appears that on the Democrat side, Randall Terry (18% statewide) and Jim Rogers (13.8% statewide) will receive delegates, in addition to Barack Obama (57.1% statewide). Terry won 12 counties, Rogers won 3, and Obama took the other 62. Obama placed third in five counties. Terry and Rogers held Obama to just 42% in the 2nd Congressional District, and 47% in the 3rd Congressional District.

Outside of Oklahoma, Romney looks to have won Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Idaho, and Ohio (in a squeaker). Gingrich won Georgia. Santorum has won Oklahoma, Tennessee, and North Dakota. Alaska's caucus results probably won't be available until sometime Wednesday.
