DENVER — It took one night for Rick Santorum to become a player again in the Republican presidential race.

The former Pennsylvania senator came out on top in the voting in all three contests Tuesday night, including an unexpected five-point victory in Colorado’s caucuses. Santorum also won the Minnesota caucuses, by an 18-point margin, and he won by 30 points in the Missouri primary.

Santorum moves on without any new delegates, but with plenty of momentum.

For everyone who flat-out declared the GOP battle a two-man race between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, voters in three states Tuesday night said, “Not so fast.” Rick Santorum pulled off huge wins in Missouri, Minnesota and, incredibly, Colorado — a state Romney was supposed to have locked up.

“Conservatism is alive and well in Missouri and Minnesota,” Santorum told a cheering crowd in Missouri.

Santorum was such an underdog that, just a week ago, people were speculating he’d drop out. Last night, he not only won — he blew out his competition.
