In an expected victory, Mitt Romney has won the 2012 Illinois GOP primary. Illinois will send 69 delegates to the convention in August. Be sure to check out Townhall's election page for full results and be sure to stay tuned to the Tipsheet for full results analysis from Guy Benson. 

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won the Illinois primary Tuesday, beating conservative rival Rick Santorum for a second time in less than a week and strengthening his fire wall in the Midwest, according to Fox News.

The victory came on top of Romney’s sweep of Puerto Rico on Sunday and gave the front-runner renewed momentum, not to mention a strong claim on 54 additional delegates, which will be awarded on a proportional basis.
