Romney wins DC, Maryland primaries, edges closer to GOP presidential nomination
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Mitt Romney has won Republican primaries in Washington, D.C., and Maryland, drawing closer to the GOP presidential nomination while rival Rick Santorum's prospects fade.
Romney also was looking for a victory later Tuesday in Wisconsin. The former Massachusetts governor is heavily favored to clinch the GOP nomination by June. Santorum has vowed not to abandon his bid despite a string of losses. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul also remain in the race. Neither is a threat to Romney.
