St. Charles, Missouri (CNN) - As he was handily winning three Republican contests and stalling frontrunner Mitt Romney's clear path to the Republican presidential nomination, Rick Santorum proclaimed to CNN that the 2012 GOP race was now "in a little bit of no man's land."
The former Pennsylvania senator's campaign got a massive dose of momentum after stunning frontrunner Mitt Romney with a clean sweep on Tuesday night, beating him by double digits in Minnesota, a state Romney won in 2008, stunning him in Colorado, another state in Romney's column in 2008, and trouncing him in Missouri, one of the country's biggest battleground states.FULL STORY

(CNN) - Tuesday is the first multiple-state contest in the Republican presidential race, and there's more at stake than just delegates. A combined 70 delegates are up for grabs in Colorado and Minnesota, while none will be awarded in Missouri's non-binding primary.
But more important than the delegate count is the momentum candidates could gain or lose.
(CNN) - Seventy delegates and a whole lot of momentum: That's what's at stake Tuesday when three states hold contests in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
It's the first day so far this cycle with multiple contests and with a total of 70 delegates up for grabs in caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota, it's the largest haul yet in the race for the White House. While the two states won't officially award delegates Tuesday night (that will happen down the road at district and state conventions), the news media, including CNN, will use the results to make unofficial delegate estimates.FULL STORY
