Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will each get half of Michigan's 30 delegates, CNN reported Wednesday. 

Romney won the popular vote in Tuesday's Michigan Republican presidential primary. However, Michigan's delegates are distributed proportionally.

A total of 1,144 delegates are needed to clinch the GOP nomination.

"This is a huge win for us. Let's play it the way it is -- don't give Romney all the spin," Santorum told reporters in reference to the Michigan results. "We went into his backyard. He spent a fortune -- money he had no intention of spending -- and we came out of there with the same number of delegates."

Santorum strategist John Brabender told reporters on a conference call that "you can only look at Michigan and move it from a win for Mitt Romney to a tie race."

"If we can do this well in Romney's home state, we clearly think this bodes well for Super Tuesday states," Brabender said.
