Washington is an important stop on the road to Super Tuesday this year

After narrow victories in Arizona and Michigan, Mitt Romney seems to have regained some ground going into Tuesday’s primary in Washington State. Washington’s Republican caucus has 43 delegates at stake and for the first time in many years the race is so tight that all four candidates are taking a real interest in campaigning in the state.

As the voting in Washington is probably the last before Super Tuesday with 10 states and 419 delegates up for grabs, a victory here will add tremendous confidence and momentum in the race for the nomination.  Though just a few weeks ago it appeared that Rick Santorum was cruising to an easy win, with a Public Policy Poll showing him with an impressive 11point lead over Mr. Romney, this has since changed and it now appears that Mr. Romney has a slim lead over Mr.Santorum.
