Romney scored a win in Arizona's winner-take-all primary, taking 47% of the vote, thanks in part to Arizona's Mormon community and support from Arizona Sen. John McCain and Gov. Jan Brewer. Romney held on to a narrow win in his home state of Michigan, winning half of the Congressional Districts, so he will split the delegate count with Rick Santorum.
The next contest will be the Washington State Caucus this coming Saturday which may pose a problem for observant Jews. The oddsmakers give Santorum a slight advantage over the Romney in Washington. Three days later comes "Super Tuesday," with contests in ten states.
