[Video] Romney’s speech in Wisconsin: ‘We won a great victory tonight’

The Ticket

Speaking from Milwaukee after sweeping Tuesday's three-state primary, Mitt Romney delivered a now-familiar victory speech: criticizing President Obama and casting himself as the Republican party's general election candidate.

"We won a great victory tonight," Romney said. He then segued into attack mode. "Take a look at the [gas] prices and ask yourself: Four more years of that?"

Romney won at least three-quarters of the nearly 100 delegates at stake in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, putting him more than halfway to the 1,144 delegates he needs to secure the nomination outright.

"Washington has to become an ally of business, not the opposition to business," he said. He did not acknowledge Rick Santorum in the speech, but did mention the upcoming Pennsylvania primary on April 24. Pennsylvania is Santorum's home state, and a serious test for his flagging campaign.
