Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum appealed to Washingtonians to “reset” the presidential race on Saturday just in time for Super Tuesday.
With the primaries in Arizona and Michigan history, the focus on the race to capture the Republican presidential nomination turns to Washington, and its position could be crucial.
