Romney campaign Focuses on Santorum in upcoming states

Coming off weeks of alternately attacking Newt Gingrich and President Barack Obama, the Romney campaign switched gears on Monday and came out swinging against former Sen. Rick Santorum, who looks to be Romney’s toughest competition in the three primary contests on Tuesday.

Minnesota and Colorado hold their caucuses on Tuesday, and Missouri holds a non-binding primary that day. Polls suggest that Santorum could perform strongly, especially in Missouri and Minnesota.

In Minnesota, Santorum actually edges Romney 29 percent to 27 percent. In Colorado, he holds a distant second place 14 points behind Romney, but leads Gingrich by 8 points, suggesting that he may be taking the place of the former speaker of the House as the Romney alternative. In Missouri, Gingrich is not on the ballot — having not filed the necessary paperwork — leaving an opening for Santorum.
