Mitt Romney's victory in Michigan's primary won't get him many more delegates than Rick Santorum, if any. It's even possible Santorum could win most of the state's delegates.

While no official determination has been made, current results suggest both candidates won seven of the state’s 14 congressional districts. Each would award two delegates. Throw in the mix two at-large delegates which Santorum adviser John Brabender said the state would likely split between Romney and Santorum since it was such a close race, and you could have Michigan end up a tie.

It’s highly likely this is is going to end up being a tie, based on the data that we have,” Brabender told reporters. “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."

Romney  took the popular vote, winning by about 3 percentage points.

Now, Brabender admits there is no official ruling from state GOP leaders but he was still pushing the idea of a tie.

Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were shut out.

Romney won all 29 delegates in Arizona's primary Tuesday. Overall, Romney leads the race for delegates with 163. Santorum has 83, Gingrich has 32 and Paul has 19.
