UNDATED (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Mitt Romney came out on top, winning 6 states including Ohio by a very narrow margin.

Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich also had wins, meaning the GOP race for President is far from over.

Mitt Romney eeked out his very narrow victory over Rick Santorum in Ohio by as little as one percentage point.

Romney also won his home state, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Idaho, Alaska and four delegates in Wyoming.

Santorum scored victories in Tennessee, Oklahoma and North Dakota.

Newt Gingrich only won in his home state of Georgia and may end up with less than half of the state's delegates.

Santorum's is now urging him to drop out.

Gingrich says that he’ll leave it up to the people to decide.

Ron Paul had hoped to win the caucus states, but he lost them all.

Before Super Tuesday, Romney had accumulated 207 delegates, Santorum 86, Paul 46, and Gingrich 39. Candidates need 1,144 to win.
