Romney Wins Huge Victory in Nevada

February 4, 2012

Mitt Romney chalked up a huge win in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, cementing his standing as the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination by adding a Western state to earlier victories in New Hampshire and Florida, CNN reported.

The former Massachusetts governor, who also dominated the Nevada contest in 2008, out-spent and out-organized his rivals and also raked in votes from energized Mormons. Coming just a few days after Romney’s 14-point victory in Florida on Tuesday, the win marked the first time a Republican contender has prevailed in back-to-back contests.

Battling it out for second place were former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum shifted his focus last week to Colorado and Minnesota, which hold caucuses on Tuesday. Gingrich released a schedule Saturday showing that he would spend Monday in the two states before heading to Ohio on Tuesday, the day early voting begins for that state’s March 6 primary.
