GOP Primary: Who Will Harford Choose?

Early voting begins a week from Saturday.


Early voting in the state primary election begins a week from Saturday in Harford County, and Patch wants to know who would win if Harford's were the only votes counted.

In the wake of Super Tuesday last week and notable Southern primaries this week, four candidates remain in the running to become the next Republican candidate for president.

Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich by a narrow margin in both Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday, a win Fox News says will keep the race alive for some time.

"Rick Santorum ensured that the Republican nominating battle will drag on, possibly into the spring and beyond, after pulling off a pair of victories in the Deep South on Tuesday-as the presidential primary race passes the midway mark," according to the story on foxnews.com.

Romney won Hawaii caucuses and the caucus in U.S. territory American Samoa.

According to the same Fox News story, Maryland is among the states that Gingrich feels he has a chance to win.

Ron Paul remains a distant fourth in the race.

Check out this table on Huffington Post for up to date electoral vote counts for each candidate.

What Patch really wants to know, though, is who Harford County would choose if the decision were up to us.

Vote in the poll, tell us why in the comments, and be sure to get out and vote in the election!

Ron Paul had his day of fame. Now is the time for all good Harford County citizens to gather around and admit the waters around you have grown, and accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you Is worth saving, then you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone.....For the times they are a-changing. Ron Paul offers nothing but Isolationist in a competitive world. Rick Santorum allowed himself to fall into the social issue trap. Newt Gingrich is a brilliant live wire. So I will hold my nose and vote for Mitt Romney or stay at home and vote for no one come November. Keep your eyes wide The chance won't come again. My opinion only, doesn't make it fact.

Fingers crossed crazy-pants Santorum wins the nomination. That will only increase Obama's chance for re-election.
none of the above March 15, 2012 at 04:42 PM
probably ron paul, sometimes "old fashioin" is the most common sense. remember as you got older your parents did know everythig. btw those who say my vote doesn't count and i will stay at home. maybe you should just move to a country where they just put someone in and your vote really doesn't count. VOTE no matter what they is how these jerks keep getting in anyone but the incumbent!!! make the REAL change. it counts for all americans not just you. VOTE!!!!!!

Ron Paul is the best for the U.S. Go to his website and read about him yourself and don't rely on others' preconceived notions that they have about him. Ron Paul 2012!
Robert J. Cervantes March 16, 2012 at 07:08 PM
Going with Ron Paul here. Defend the nation, lower my tax bill, clean up the wasteful spending. Get government out of my life. The only one who cares about the Constitution, even when unpopular or uncomfortable.
