Look for a lot of talk Wednesday about what happened on Super Tuesday and what it means going forward in the race for the Republican nomination.

The bottom line on Tuesday's 10 contests: Mitt Romney won Ohio (by a hair), Alaska, Idaho, Vermont, Virginia and his home state of Massachusetts. Rick Santorum won North Dakota, Oklahoma and Tennessee, and Newt Gingrich won his home state of Georgia.

Santorum, Romney's chief rival, is not taking a break Wednesday. He's back on the stump in Kansas, which holds caucuses Saturday, and Mississippi, which has a primary next Tuesday. He has an event in Lenexa, Kan., at 1:30 p.m. CST, followed by a stop in Tupelo, Miss, at 5 p.m. CST and a rally in Jackson at 7:30 p.m. CST.

Gingrich, too, will be on the stump Wednesday, He'll be in Alabama, where the primary take place next Tuesday, with his wife Callista. He has a rally in Montgomery at 10:30 a.m. EST, one in Pell City at 2:30 p.m. EST and a third one in Birmingham at 6:30 p.m. EST.

Romney and Ron Paul had nothing on their campaign calendars for Wednesday.

President Obama travels to Mt. Holly, N.C., on Wednesday to speak at 12:45 p.m. EST on the economy at the Daimler Trucks North America Mount Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant. Question: Will he make any reference to the GOP candidates, especially Romney?

And then there is this: Paul has yet to win a state, but he vows to press on with his campaign, much to the delight of his enthusiastic supporters.
