Clips From Last Night: Mitt Romney's Comm. Director on the delegate split in Michigan, Santorum's "underhanded trick"

Mitt Romney won the Wyoming caucuses Wednesday and the GOP candidate's communication director Gail Gitcho visited "Piers Morgan Tonight," adding insight and perspective to her boss's recent victories.

The former Massachusetts governor also captured a win in both the Arizona and Michigan primaries. But despite earning the edge in his home-state, Romney merely split the delegates with rival Rick Santorum.

When asked about the tie, or in the words of Piers Morgan, the "draw," Gitcho still felt the results were a "great victory," adding that "Republicans according to exit polls went overwhelmingly for Governor Romney and Rick Santorum lost substantially the Republican vote in Michigan."

Gitcho went on to criticize Santorum's strategy of drawing Democrats into the Republican process in an effort to defeat Romney in Michigan, calling it "an underhanded trick.":

"The Democrats were all too happy to join into this process because they look at Rick Santorum as a gift to Barack Obama and to his reelection efforts. They think that he would be much easier to defeat then they would going up against Mitt Romney."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Gitcho denounces the tactics of Santorum, and details the path of the race moving forward.

    There is a lot of talk about an alliance between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, This is a call out to request Ron and Mitt to a debate in Virginia, since they are the only canidents on the ballot in that state. That should put and end to all the conspiricy about an alliance. How about this. I will bet for Romney not to except, and Ron Paul if you refuses I want my money back for the contributions I gave and for the sweaters I bought.

      Come on, Dan, you're smarter than this.

      Ron Paul said it after New Hampshire that he wanted everyone to step down behind him so he can go one on one against Romney. Ron Paul has $20 million raised while Gingrich and Santorum combined have that amount. It makes sense for Ron Paul to want the other two out of the race as fast as possible. Romney is weak enough as it is.

      Yes, they are friends and respect each other. However, they aren't allies. It makes zero sense.

      For those new to this, Ron Paul stayed all the way to the RNC in 2008, and had his own convention when he wasn't allowed to speak. Now, his goal is to win the nomination or get enough delegate support to be a force in the RNC.

      There's no way a man of this level of knowledge and intellect could team up with someone like Romney.
