Romney Wins in Rhode Island and Connecticut Primaries
By Michael O'Brien Updated 8:21 p.m. ET - Mitt Romney won the Connecticut and Rhode Island primaries on Tuesday, putting him on the path toward the general election, and allowing him to tend to unfinished business in the Republican primary.
Facing no meaningful opposition in Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, or Rhode Island, the former Massachusetts governor was expected to win the vast majority, if not all, of the 222 delegates up for grabs in his bid to formalize the GOP nomination.
While President Barack Obama went after the college vote Tuesday, presidential candidate Mitt Romney was prepping for another primary night. NBC's Chuck Todd reports.
He started the evening, which was expected to showcase his pivot toward the general election, with wins in two of the five states.In the three weeks since the last slate of primaries in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Wisconsin, Romneys principle conservative rival, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, exited the race.

Ya! We gotta vote out the Commies! Vote um all out!!! And replace um with our very own Commies! er ahh.. wait a second.
Your welcome to vote for the commie (either one) if you’d like.
Me, not this time. I have a god to answer to and I’ve made enough mistakes in my life to explain.
LOL.... It’s not my attention span. It’s your sanctimonious garbage that you cut & paste and post again and again. Your drivel is nauseating to say the least. Your ‘holier than thou’ crap is so disingenuous it stinks.
So you see, it’s not that I haven’t paid attention in the past. It’s kinda like taking a leak on an electric fence.....eventually, even for the dumbest, it’s just not fun anymore.
I recognize that at some point I will be very unhappy with what this country ends up with, but I will always have joy on my face with the knowledge that your saint is not going to be in the White House.
You have to treat voters like durg adicts. They have to bottom out on their own before you can help them with recovery.
4 more years of Obama is likely enough for them to bottom out.
There are many here who will sell out and vote for Obama white..
I am not one of them (and I know.. neither are you)
those same republicans that not only do nothing to control obama but side with him from time to time?
Oh wow, no libs are the people who help Obama to be re-elected. Apparently your attitude will help Obama so which one of us is like a lib?????
I agree. We have too many spineless repubs, let’s work on the remaining Congressional primaries and get some backbone in congress. Then we can keep the Lib Romney in check (for the most part), but no how no way will we keep a 2nd term Obama in check.
We are going to have to find a away to keep Obama in check. It’s easy for me not to vote for Romney. He’s not going to carry Minnesota anyways.
Thing is, he’s not likely to carry much at all. Romney will loose and the fix has been in for months. Romney is not suppose to win, or come close to winning.
we have to focus on the house and senate. Bonehead and McConehead need to go.
That post is a nice exhibit of low intellect. No wonder you supported a joker who was roundly beaten and became the stock in trade laugh on SNL- even the penguins were offended.
I will always have joy on my face with the knowledge that your saint is not going to be in the White House.
Who cares what you think? Over 3 million primary voters thought otherwise and we are not counting penguins or residents of moon-based colonies.
Romney is going to be crushed like a bug, by Obama anyway, so it’s a moot point.
I know that. Been saying that for a while. I use “Obama will beat Romney like a rental car with full insurance”
Romney is McCain. Sent in to blow it and loose.
You have to understand: "Obama=Romney" is like a spiritual truth believed with religious fervor. To admit that Romney, while not as conservative as most of the Republican field, is miles away from the Marxist, anti-American clown in the White House would condemn their actions of not doing everything in their power to rid this country of the plague elected in 2008. Since Romney would do everything the same, in their mind, including keeping Eric Holder and Napalitano in place, continuing the assault on States' rights in suing over immigration and voter ID laws, basing justice on color of skin, new czars, expansion of executive power, etc., then they are free to vote for Goode, or write-in Palin, etc. Admitting that Romney, while not perfect, is more likely to repeal Obamacare (he has said he would during his campaign, has Obama?), cut spending, cut taxes, would force them to vote for him or suffer pangs of conscience. Blindly holding to the belief that Romney is evil, just like Obama, allows them to avoid the guilt.
