He could have enough states to have his name up for nomination, just like Romney and Huckabee did in 2008. He has no interest in having his name nominated, though, for the same reasons that Romney and Huckabee didn't in 2008 - the race is over, he supports the winner, and just having 5 states does not give you any chance of winning when someone else has 40. If Romney drops out, Santorum will jump back in. If Romney stays in, he will win the vote in Tampa by a huge margin, no matter who else has their name up for nomination.
