Rick Santorum Wins GOP Contests In Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado But All Eyes On Mitt Romney

Rick Santorum may have swept Tuesday's GOP nominating contests in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado, but on Wednesday all eyes were on Mitt Romney.

Political analysts say Santorum's wins says more about the ex-Massachusetts governor and solidifies the notion that voters are unsettled about Romney and that he's not the inevitable Republican presidential nominee.

"Mitt Romney wanted to roll into Super Tuesday as the presumptive nominee," GOP strategist Ford O'Connell told the Daily News. "That's not going to happen now... This really throws a wrench in the plan."

So what's next for the GOP hopefuls? There's big races in Arizona and Michigan on Feb. 28. And of course there's Super Tuesday on March 6.
