Clean sweep: Santorum takes Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado contests

Posted:

(AP) -- Rick Santorum has won Minnesota's Republican caucuses and the Missouri primary.

Returns show Santorum took Minnesota with 45%of the vote. Ron Paul was second with 27%. 

Colorado was a tighter race. Santorum took 40% while Mitt Romney took 35%.

The Missouri win is a feather in Santorum's cap, but there were no delegates at stake. They'll be chosen next month in caucuses.
