Rick Santorum won Republican presidential primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, but he didn't gain any ground in the race for delegates against frontrunner Mitt Romney.

Romney wiped out Santorum's gains by winning caucuses in Hawaii and American Samoa Tuesday. For the day, Romney picked up at least 40 delegates and Santorum got at least 34. Newt Gingrich got at least 24 delegates and Ron Paul got at least 1. Eleven delegates were still to be determined.

Even if Santorum got all the remaining delegates, the race between Romney and Santorum would remain essentially unchanged.

Romney leads the overall race for delegates with 494, followed by Santorum with 251 and Gingrich with 131. Paul trails with 48. It takes 1,144 delegates to win the GOP nomination for president.
