Last night Mitt Romney swept all five primary contests, leaving both Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul behind in the states they thought they might have a decent showing in. It’s official: the former Massachusetts Governor is in full general election mode, a pivot that his campaign fully concedes. The initial read on Mitt Romney’s “better America” speech last night was that it was his strongest address to date, and will likely encourage one-time reluctant conservatives to line up behind Romney, especially with their checkbooks.
Make no mistake, Mitt Romney is still the conventional underdog. But he continues to play a pretty good game of catch-up.
