Romney Wins Puerto Rico GOP Primary
Mitt Romney handily won Puerto Rico’s primary on Sunday, according to projections from The Associated Press, as he and challenger Rick Santorum try to create the mathematical inevitability to score the Republican presidential nomination to challenge President Obama.
With Puerto Rico offering 20 delegates on Sunday, Romney, the GOP front-runner, was expected to pick up all of them because he got more than 50 percent of the vote. About 150,000 people were expected to cast ballots
Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul did not compete in Puerto Rico but while their rivals campaigned on the island territory last week, they are also looking forward to Tuesday’s primary in Illinois, with 69 delegates and then to Louisiana on the weekend, which provides 18 pledged delegates.
