The big question this morning - does Mitt Romney's decisive double digit win in Illinois mean the fight for the nomination is effectively over? Several NOWists have written posts this morning. Some believe that Romney has secured his place, others say that unless one of the three other candidates drop out, there could be shenanigans involving delegates that could threaten Romney's anointment at the convention.
Consider this - Romney's momentum is indisputable today - but does this weekend's Louisiana primary, where Santorum is expected to do well - make this a three-day story? Let us know what you think here on the blog or on Twitter, #NowWithAlex.
