Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum is hoping to score his first win of the primary election season in Tuesday's Minnesota caucus.
Public Policy Polling released a survey on Monday night showing Santorum running ahead of rival Republican contenders in the North Star State.
The AP reports:
A straw ballot will crown a winner Tuesday night, but delegates to the summer's Republican National Convention won't be decided for several more months.
Four years ago, more than 60,000 Republicans turned out and Romney trounced eventual nominee John McCain. That more than doubled attendance from 2004, but was overshadowed by the more than 200,000 Democrats who headed to their caucuses to give Barack Obama a 2-to-1 win over Hillary Rodham Clinton.
