Gingrich Completely Blown-Away In Sidekick Tuesday Races

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum won the latest round of the GOP primary crapshoot Tuesday, winning all three contests in Colorado, Minnesota, and non-binding Missouri. Mitt Romney, until now the Republican front-runner, came-in second, and sometimes third. Newt "This Can't Be Right" Gingrich has been relegated to bottom-feeder status, even losing to Ron Paul in Minnesota.

Minnesota Closes Due To Budget Impasse

Minnesota Democrats and Republicans debate the effect of their budget impasse.

The State of Minnesota closed-down after state lawmakers failed to resolve a budget impasse. Democrats want to cut the state’s $3.6 billion deficit by raising taxes, while Republicans want to cut spending. The budget deadline passed and the new fiscal year began with no resolution, throwing 20,000 state employees out of work and closing almost all state facilities.

Only Minnesota transport workers were on the job, placing large “Closed – turn around and go back where you came from” signs on all roads crossing the state border.
