Rick Santorum wins Alabama GOP primary

Rick Santorum has won Alabama's Republican presidential primary.

The former Pennsylvania senator edged rivals Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney to capture the Deep South state.

Mississippi remains a close race, with Santorum edging slightly ahead.

The state is still too close to call. Evangelicals played a critical role in both states' vote.

Roughly 4 in 5 voters who were surveyed in an exit poll called themselves born-again or evangelical in both Alabama and Mississippi.
