WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Super Tuesday Republican primaries were a race between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, Republicans selected a Jewish veteran for Ohio's Senate run, and Dennis Kucinich lost his bid for reelection.
Ten states went to the polls Tuesday in what is the biggest election day of primary season.
Fresh off New Hampshire win, frontrunner from Massachusetts seen as ‘kind of heimish.’
With the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary behind him, Mitt Romney, who garnered 40 percent in the Granite State, is on to the South Carolina primary Jan. 21, where polls put him narrowly in the lead. Should he win in the face of a blistering $3.4 million negative ad campaign, courtesy of a super PAC backing Newt Gingrich, he would be poised to win in Florida Jan. 31 and become the first non-incumbent Republican presidential candidate to sweep the first four primaries.
And that would please Jewish Republicans, analysts say.
