Washington, Mar.7 (ANI): Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum has won the Oklahoma primary.
Santorum needed the much-needed statewide triumph on Super Tuesday, and has now won six nominating contests, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Forty-three delegates were up for grabs in the Sooner State, making it the fifth-largest cache up for grabs on Super Tuesday.
Of that total, 25 will be awarded on a proportional basis to all candidates with more than 15 percent of the statewide vote.
Another three delegates will be divided on a proportional basis depending on the results in each of the state's five congressional districts.
Based on initial exit polls, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich look to be in a close race for second.
Both would likely take some of the at-large delegates.
Romney, the national front-runner, did not campaign in the state, though he won a late endorsement from Sen. Tom Coburn, a leading budget hawk.
So far, Romney has won three Super Tuesday states: Massachusetts, Virginia and Vermont. Gingrich prevailed in his home state of Georgia. (ANI)
