WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum won the Missouri primary on Tuesday, with Mitt Romney coming in second, CNN projected.

The former Pennsylvania senator won 55 percent of the votes, followed by Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, with 25 percent, the U.S. broadcaster projected while the ballots were still being calculated.

Texas congressman Ron Paul finished third with 12 percent of the votes. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was not on the ballot.

This was the second victory for Santorum after winning the Iowa caucuses by a narrow margin.
