Voters In 10 States Choose Among GOP Candidates

CINCINNATI (AP) — Some voters in Ohio today are making it clear that all of the Republican candidates still have some convincing to do.

Polling officials near Cincinnati say many people are asking only for ballots on the issues, and they’re skipping the presidential voting altogether. One voter says he doesn’t like the way “Republicans have gone after each other” — and he adds, “the Democrats aren’t any better.”

Rick Santorum got the vote of contractor Matt Howells in suburban Cleveland, but Howells said he really doesn’t see a Republican winning in November.

Ohio is the biggest prize at stake in today’s 10 Super Tuesday contests. Polls suggest the Ohio primary will be a tight race between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. After falling behind Santorum in Ohio last month, Romney has closed the gap in recent days, with polls showing the race a dead heat.

With 419 delegates at stake around the country today, the voting represents a sizeable slice of the 1,144 needed to nail down the GOP nomination.

In Edmond, Okla., Newt Gingrich got a reluctant vote from Tricia Tetrault, who said she voted for him because “Ronald Reagan wasn’t available anymore.”
