KALAMAZOO (WKZO)  --  There are at least two theories why Rick Santorum lost in Kalamazoo County.  One is because absentee ballots were cast before he surged. The difference was enough to put Romney over the top in the  county.  The AB Ballots went 2 to 1 for Romney giving him Kalamazoo County, but Santorum won most of the rest of west Michigan and will get its delegates..Kalamazoo County Clerk Tim Snow says turnout for the primary at 14.6% was abysmal. He says there were a few people who stormed out of polling places after they were told they would have to declare which party ballot they wanted, but no major problems.Kalamazoo County Republican Party Chair AL Heilman says this was the nastiest campaign he has ever seen and he is concerned it’s damaging the party. He thinks it cost Santorum the victory in the end because his campaign was so neagative.   He was glad that Romney won the state but not at all happy about the way the candidates went about their campaigns.He thinks Romney has a chance to beat President Obama, but says he doubted that Santorum could.
