While college basketball teams and fans prepare to be swept away in the fanatical celebration that has come to be known as March Madness another competition is already underway and about to get a bit more intense.
Super Tuesday is set to kick off tomorrow in 10 states across the nation. The competition is, of course, a heated contest between the 4 GOP candidates: Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, Former Senator Rick Santorum, Texas Congressman Ron Paul and Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
Coming off of this weekend’s Washington caucus it appears that Romney has the momentum. However, he will be involved in several slug fests in the south for sure and potentially Ohio will be a tight race as well.
Ron Paul gained momentum in Washington as well, besting Santorum by 1%. The momentum of the Paul campaign has been solidly gaining over the past four years and continues to grow as his message resonates with voters.
Rick Santorum, according to the Romney campaign, “flunked” a test of organizational strength. Santorum didn’t file complete slates of delegates in Tennessee or Ohio and he failed to get on the ballot in Virginia and the District of Columbia. With all of this, at the present he looks to give Romney a run for his money in this race.

AP – Feb. 7, 2012: President Barack Obama talks with, from left, Janet Nieto, Gwynelle Condino, and Ana Nieto, all from Presidio, Texas, in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington during the White House Science Fair.
WASHINGTON – President Obama is set to give 10 states a pass regarding an approaching deadline under the No Child Left Behind law, after the states struggled to meet the proficiency standards for reading and math.
The executive action will circumvent Congress, which has been stuck on how to rewrite the law. A White House official confirmed to Fox News on Thursday that the 10 states will receive “flexibility” allowing them to miss 2014 targets for student proficiency. However, those states will be required to set new targets, and implement “comprehensive” plans to reward high-performing schools, punish low-performing schools, prepare students for college and the work force and evaluate school officials.
