Republican Presidential Field

April 3 was a night to remember for Mitt Romney, the GOP’s presumptive nominee. After winning all three of the primary contests that took place, he’s that much closer to a one-on-one battle with President Obama. But rivals Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich won’t make it easy. And though Rep. Ron Paul is bringing up the rear in delegate counts, he vows to stay in the race. According to the Associated Press, Romney has secured 656 of the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination, followed by Santorum (278), Gingrich (135) and Paul (51).Joyce Jones
