Mitt Romney Easily Wins Five More Primary Contests
Matt | On 25, Apr 2012
Mitt Romney continues to steamroll his way to a potential GOP nomination for president.
On Tuesday, Romney swept five extremely under-hyped contests in what’s sometimes known as the “Yankee Primary.” These races included the states of Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
It was a no-brainer that Romney was going to win these elections. Since second-place finisher Rick Santorum dropped out of the race on April 10, the field has been wide open for Romney to march toward GOP victory.
Left in the dust are Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, neither of whom needed to participate in the race on Tuesday. There has been word in the media that Gingrich will formally drop out of the race on May 1 at his final campaign event in Washington, D.C. No word on next steps for Ron Paul’s campaign.
