OHIO, AT LAST
A late-night squeaker in Ohio has just saved Mitt Romney from an otherwise wimpy Super Tuesday showing.
Romney and his chief challenger Rick Santorum fought bitterly over the Midwestern swing state that will be central to the general election this fall. It was the big prize of the evening, a chance for one man to prove his chops. Losing Ohio would have left Romney still the favorite to win the nomination, but with little to brag about.
You can bet he'll be holding his head a little higher Wednesday morning, thanks to Ohio.
