Primary Night...Santorum Wins Missouri, Leads in CO and MN (WINS ALL THREE!)

Via twitter, Rick Santorum has won the primary in Missouri.  With 34 percent reporting, Santorum is at 54%, Romney 25%, RuPaul 12% and 5% other.  Newt Gingrich was not on the ballot there.

Santorum is also doing well in Colorado and Minnesota, states won by Romney in 2008.

What does this mean?  Romney is not the "inevitable" nominee. 

So, does that mean "Viagra Bob" Dole, and the rest of the GOP country club establishment get to pile mud on Santorum, like they did Newt before Florida?

UPDATE: Santorum wins all three.  So much for the "Romney is the inevitable nominee" claim?

At Legal Insurrection:

Horrible night for Romney. Another hole in the bubble of electability, and the new narrative (which I have been saying for weeks) is that he only can win when he attacks and outspends (Nevada an exception for demographic reasons).
