US Republican race: Santorum wins Kansas caucuses

Text size Aa Aa

Conservative Rick Santorum has cruised to victory in the Kansas caucuses.

The win keeps alive his hopes of being the US Republicans’ presidential candidate but he will have to get past Mitt Romney first.

Romney remains frontrunner in the battle to clinch the party’s nomination. He did not campaign in Kansas but beat his rivals in Wyoming’s vote.

Former Massachusetts Governor Romney also triumphed off the mainland, in the US territory of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

While there is still no clear Republican winner, Santorum will hope that his convincing score in Kansas is a sign that this is a now a two-man race.
