(CNN) - Rick Santorum turns his focus to his home state of Pennsylvania on Wednesday as he faces an uphill battle to convince Republicans he can stop Mitt Romney from clinching the party nomination after his three-primary sweep.

Romney's wins in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia put him past the halfway mark to the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination and add to a wide lead over other GOP presidential candidates, according to CNN estimates.

    Santorum is really a fighter. In the whole group of GOP contenders, he is the only one who has shown success is not what you accomplish, but what obstacles you encounter. The result in Wisconsin shows he is still engaged well in the game.
