DeWine’s Mulligan – They swept into the U.S. Senate together in the 1994 Republican revolution, when Republicans took control. They lost together in 2006 when Republicans lost control. And today former Sen. Mike DeWine took an endorsement mulligan, snatched back his preference from Mitt Romney and decided to stand instead with Rick Santorum. According to DeWine, Romney has shown an “astounding inability to provide voters with a rationale to support him.” As for Santorum, “People like him — he’s human!” DeWine said. http://abcn.ws/yK7T2v

Midwest Hearts Santorum, argues Matt Jaffe – “Thus far, Santorum has simply owned the Midwest. He won Iowa. He won Minnesota. He won Missouri. The region, laden with social conservative voters, has sided time and time again with the former Pennsylvania senator, the most outspoken candidate on issues such as abortion.” http://abcn.ws/xL5d4R
