Rick Santorum is expected to do well there and coupled with what is looking like a possible win in Minnesota, may propel him into the latest anyone-but-Romney candidate.

However, with lack of campaign funds and organization, it is doubtful Santorum will receive much traction. Romney is expected to win Colorado and Gingrich is becoming the latest GOP candidate to begin to fade.

Regardless, of the outcomes today, Romney will still be the Republican front runner.
