Romney Wins Big in Illinois

Illinois Republicans "delivered a decisive victory to Mitt Romney in the state's presidential primary Tuesday, crushing Rick Santorum in what amounted to the first big-state head-to-head contest among the front-runners for the GOP nomination," the Chicago Tribune reports.

"Even more important for Romney, he swamped Santorum by winning 39 of the 54 elected delegates up for grabs in the state. Santorum had only five, though votes were still being counted in several Downstate congressional districts where he ran strongest."

Chicago Sun Times: "Romney's team knew that the suburbs were key -- and scheduled a series of stops in the northwest suburbs in the closing days of the Illinois campaign."
