Romney, Rick and Ohio (Update: Cleveland vs the Farms)

As Ohio comes down the stretch to a photo-finish, Romney will get the majority of delegates there due to the fact that Santorum only filed a partial slate.

For momentum, bragging rights and fundraising, Rick needs Ohio more than Mitt.

If Mitt holds onto hid 38-37% lead, it’s apparent that Newt was the spoiler tonight: most of his 15% came @ Rick’s expense.

Update: With 90% of Ohio in, virtually all of Columbus and Cincy have reported.

Still outstanding is 40% of Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), plus a few suburbs (Medina County).

Santorum’s only hope for victory is that a few last rural counties can outvote the Lake City.
