Presidential heavyweight Mitt Romney is riding a major momentum shift following a 4 to 1 victory in Puerto Rico and now a double digit lead over rival Rick Santorum in the Illinois primary. Governor Romney was the clear choice for this populous state with very high unemployment. Illinois is a large bell-weather state, delegate rich and a nice model for the nation as a whole.
Immediate media reaction has been positive and his direct outline of his economic freedom and vision for America’s future is evident in his victory speech.
