    Santorum Camp: Michigan Is a Tie

Kennedy's 1960 speech on religion, he was repeating a common conservative view that the address did more harm than good. Santorum, competing for conservatives votes in a close GOP presidential primary with Republican Mitt Romney, argued that more religion was needed in American public life.  (AP Photo/Eric Gay, File)

    With Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney each looking poised to take home 15 of Michigan's 30 delegates, Santorum's team is ready to call the primary a tie. "It's highly likely this is going to end up being a tie, based on the data that we have," Santorum adviser John Brabender said. " I don't know how you look at that as anything besides this being a strong showing for Rick Santorum and anything short of a disaster for Mitt Romney." Brabender also argued that a tie would mean an effective loss for Romney, who was declared the winner last night with a three percentage point lead.
