Ron Paul ignored the primaries in Arizona and Michigan Tuesday night and took his campaign to Virginia, where only he and Mitt Romney are on the March 6 ballot.
Paul teased a sometimes boisterous crowd at a Springfield banquet hall just a few miles outside of the nation's capital. "You're such a noisy bunch. What's going on here?" Paul joked. "I keep saying they're sound asleep in Washington. We have to be noisy so they hear us!"
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney notched two big wins Tuesday, upping his Republican presidential delegate count and taking modest-plus momentum into the week leading up to Super Tuesday on March 6.
With the Michigan and Arizona primaries in the history books as Romney's fifth and sixth victories, we're looking ahead to Super Tuesday, when presidential contests will be held in 10 states and 413 delegates will be up for grabs.
