Santorum sweeps Kansas Republican caucuses: CNN projects

TOPEKA, Kansas (Reuters) - Former Senator Rick Santorum won the Republican presidential caucuses in Kansas on Saturday, CNN projected, giving him a boost going into crucial primary votes in the South next week.

Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, was on 53 percent of the vote, far ahead of his three rivals, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
