Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney celebrates a three-state sweep in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Tonight’s wins put Romney’s delegate count securely over the half-way mark to 1144 delegates needed to win the nomination.
In his victory speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Governor Romney assured Americans that during his presidency,
“We’ll stop the days of apologizing for success at home and never again apologize for America abroad. Together we’ll build the greatest America we have ever known …”
He closed his remarks in the manner of a nominee, a clear signal that the General Election campaign is about to begin:
“There was a time – not so long ago – when each of us could walk a little taller and stand a little straighter because we had a gift that no one else in the world shared. We were Americans. That meant something different to each of us, but it meant something special to all of us. We knew it without question. And so did the world.
Those days are coming back. That’s our destiny. Join me. And take another step every day until November 6th.
We believe in America. We believe in ourselves. Our greatest days are still ahead. We are, after all, Americans!
God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”
