POWELL, Tenn., Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum, on the campaign trial in Tennessee, said his narrow loss in the Michigan primary actually was a win for him.
"This is a huge win for us," Santorum told reporters after a speech in Powell, Politico reported. "We went into his backyard. [Mitt Romney] spent a fortune, money he had no intention of spending, and we came out of there with the same number of delegates he does. We are in great shape going into this election. We are excited about what's going to happen on Super Tuesday" next week.
