In all, Romney has gained victories in five Super Tuesday states. The other states he's won are Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia and Idaho.

Santorum has won Tennessee, Oklahoma and North Dakota, while Newt Gingrich has won his home state of Georgia.

Results from Alaska's caucuses have not yet been reported.
      
Previous Coverage:

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have split six states in the Super Tuesday sweepstakes and are locked in tight competition in Ohio.

Romney has won in Virginia, Vermont and his home state of Massachusetts. He was heavily favored in Vermont and Massachusetts. And in Virginia, he faced only Ron Paul because Santorum and Newt Gingrich didn't get on the ballot.

Rick Santorum has won primaries in Tennessee and Oklahoma, as well as North Dakota's caucuses.

With two-thirds of the precincts counted in Ohio, Santorum held a very slim lead.

Gingrich captured the primary in his former home state of Georgia -- where he had acknowledged that a defeat would be a major setback to his campaign. The former House speaker says he has survived an establishment effort to end his campaign. He plans to stump Wednesday in Alabama and Mississippi.

Paul is pinning his hopes for his first victory of the campaign on tonight's caucuses in Idaho and Alaska.

Previous Coverage:

Mitt Romney has extended his lead in the race for delegates.

The former Massachusetts governor has secured at least 64 delegates with wins in Republican presidential primaries tonight in Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia.

Newt Gingrich has picked up at least 23 delegates by winning Georgia's primary. Georgia offers the most delegates of the Super Tuesday contests with 76. The state awards delegates proportionally, so the candidates will divide them according to their finish.

Romney has the overall lead in the delegate race with 267, including endorsements from members of the Republican National Committee who automatically attend the convention and can support any candidate they choose.

Santorum has 92 delegates, while Gingrich has 56 and Paul has 25.

It takes 1,144 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president.
