Romney had congratulated Santorum on his caucus and "beauty contest" wins last night (Missouri's primary was non-binding), but added that "given the number of primaries ahead, and geographic diversity, the Romney campaign is the only one with the resources and the organization capable of maximizing delegate totals and competing in simultaneous elections across the country."
