Mitt Romney addressed supporters in Denver, on the night that he lost the Minnesota caucuses and Missouri's non-binding primary to Rick Santorum. The result is still pending in Colorado, with Santorum ahead in the very early returns — and Romney was not able to predict victory there, either.
Romney thanked all his supporters, including those who have gone out caucusing tonight in Colorado. "The race is too close to call in Colorado at this point, but I'm pretty confident we'll come in Number 1 or Number 2."
After further thanking his supporters in Colorado, as well as Missouri and Minnesota, he said: "This was a a good night for Rick Santorum. I want to congratulate Senator Santorum, wish him the very best. We'll keep on campaigning down the road, but I expect to become our nominee with your help."
