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.
