Congressional district results prove to be close

Congressional district results prove to be close Detroit Free Press
As a result, Romney wins 21 delegates from the congressional district results, according to results posted by the Michigan Republican Party. However, only 14 will be allowed to vote at the national convention because the state party broke national GOP rules when it moved its primary ahead of the Super Tuesday contests next week.

Santorum wins 18 delegates from the congressional districts, but only 12 of those will be able to vote.

The statewide popular vote will be distributed between Romney and Santorum on a proportional basis with 14 at-large delegates at stake.
Only two of those can vote.
How those will be divvied up hasn't been determined.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who ended up with 12% of the statewide vote, won't get any at-large delegates because he needed to get at least 15% of the statewide vote to qualify
