Full Ohio delegate slate out of reach for Santorum
Failure to file full delegate slate in Ohio could leave Santorum short even if he wins
By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' A wrinkle in his early campaign filings could leave Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum without almost a third of available Ohio delegates even if he wins Super Tuesday's primary election.

Santorum has already forsaken nine delegates by not being on ballots in three Ohio congressional districts. Each district merits three delegates.

Party officials said Friday the problem goes deeper.



Santorum failed to file a full complement of delegates in six additional districts. The holes add up to another nine delegates, for a total of 18 out of the 63 up for grabs.

Ohio Republican Party spokesman Chris Maloney says the leftover delegates will be considered unallocated, and the presidential campaigns will be able to file a contest with the GOP to claim them.
