After winning Nevada’s Republican Caucus over the weekend, presidential candidate Mitt Romney turned his attention to upcoming contests in Colorado and Minnesota. Although turn-out was far lower than expected In Nevada, Romney received fifty percent of the vote, with Newt Gingrich coming in second and Ron Paul and Rick Santorum following. Also over the weekend, Jill Stein won 90 percent of the vote in Ohio’s Green Party state convention. Actress Roseanne Barr, who recently announced her candidacy, came in second with about five percent of the vote. Ohio is also being watched by progressives as a campaign heats up between two veteran Democrats who are being forced to run against each other. This follows Ohio losing two seats and a Republican-led redistricting that created a map with only 4 out of 16 districts that lean toward the Democrats. From Ohio, FSRN’s Sehvilla Mann has more.
