With Mitt Romney pulling out primary wins Tuesday night in Arizona and Michigan, many people are wondering if the GOP has selected its candidate.

Analysts with the University of Virginia's Center for Politics say we still don't have a clear cut winner or, for that matter, any potential presidential candidate near the more than 1,100 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination.

"The winner in Michigan (Romney) will probably have some momentum to carry over into Ohio on Super Tuesday, but we'll see. Super Tuesday is a week away and that's been sort of an eternity in this race," said Kyle Kondik.

With only Romney and Ron Paul on the Virginia GOP ballot, Kondik says the Commonwealth will definitely go to Romney.
