Delegate Totals: Where Do the Candidates Stand?

Comstock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- At the end of the first month of the primary season,  former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has a commanding lead where delegate allotment is concerned. Tuesday night’s victory in Florida gave him 50 delegates, bringing his total projected number of delegates to 71.

Candidate (Projected # of Delegates)

  • Romney (71)
  • Gingrich (23)
  • Santorum (13*)
  • Paul (3)
  • Huntsman (2)

A candidate must receive 1,144 delegates in order to clinch the GOP nomination.

*Note that all of Santorum’s 13 delegates, along with 12 of Romney’s 71 delegates, are unbound, and therefore subject to change.
