From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The 2012 Republican Primary were won by Mitt Romney. They are the Republican Party's primary to decide who will run against Obama in the 2012 presidential election. Currently, there are four candidates in the running: RINO Mitt Romney, family values conservative Rick Santorum, conservative Newt Gingrich and libertarian Ron Paul. For sometime Romney was ahead in the polls, but many Republicans hoped a more conservative candidate would gain the nomination causing Newt to gain the lead briefly, but then Santorum surged. Ultimately, the goal of the Republicans in 2012 is to defeat President Barack Obama which will take a strong conservative candidate. See: Presidential Election 2012.
