Romney wins 3 more states, targets Obama

Share

Romney’s wins in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C. gave him a prohibitive lead in the battle for the Republican presidential nomination, analysts said, and effectively consigned chief rival Rick Santorum to also-ran status.

Obama criticized Romney by name while blasting a Republican budget plan on Tuesday, a move the president had avoided until now. Romney made no mention of Santorum or any other Republican rivals in his victory speech in Wisconsin late Tuesday, focusing instead on Obama.

“In Barack Obama’s government-centered society, the government must do more because the economy is doomed to do less,” Romney told supporters in Milwaukee. “When you attack business and vilify success, you will have less business and less success.”

“It is clearly Santorum’s fault that Romney’s favorable among women and independents collapsed,” said Cal Jillson, a political science professor at Southern Methodist University. “He forced Romney to the right on social issues, where he was uncomfortable and unconvincing.”
