Borger: Ohio is a big prize for GOP candidates

(CNN) - While Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum stumped in different parts of the country on Thursday, they will soon be campaigning again in Ohio, a major Super Tuesday battleground state.

Ohio - with 63 delegates at stake on Tuesday - is a key state not only in the Republican primary race but also in the general election. CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger takes a closer at the politics of Ohio.

    It is funny how Santorum paints Romney as a moderate. Santorum is the one who has alligned himself with Michael Moore and democrats to get the democrats to support him. Interestingly, the democrats have admitted Santorum is the weakest candidate.

    I sincerely hope that the women of Ohio, in particular, will pay very close attention to the statements of the candidates, particularly Santorum. I also hope they are aware of how a top Republican is publicly demeaning women and no one from the Republican party, at this writing, has come forward to publicly chastise Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh seems to enjoy being the ugliest of ugly Americans.
