Romney wins Illinois; Wisconsin primary draws near

UNDATED (WSAU) With the Wisconsin primary just 13 days away, Mitt Romney says he’s “almost there” in securing the G-O-P presidential nomination.

The former Massachusetts governor easily won yesterday’s primary in neighboring Illinois by around 12-points over Rick Santorum. Romney was favored by Republicans who said they were most concerned about picking somebody who can beat President Obama in the fall. Santorum said he out-polled Romney in the most conservative areas of southern Illinois.

The win gave Romney at least 41 more delegates, adding to his lead – and the A-P says he now has 563 of the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination. Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, has 263 delegates. Newt Gingrich has 135, and Ron Paul 50. Next up is the Louisiana primary on Saturday, and Santorum looks to recover.

Then there’s a 10-day break before Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington D-C all vote on April 3rd.
