With wins in Maryland, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C., Mitt Romney inched his way forward toward becoming the inevitable GOP presidential candidate.
After Tuesday's hat trick, the road to victory is clear for Romney and increasingly rocky and unlikely for Rick Santorum, Romney's leading opponent.
Still, in a speech from Mars, Pa., Santorum vowed to continue his campaign.
"We have now reached the point where it's half time," Santorum said. "Who's ready to charge out of the locker room for a strong second half in Pennsylvania?"
Democratic Congressman Cedric Richmond will be in town this week to co-host a Congressional Conversation on Race. The talks are a project of Search for Common Ground and The Faith and Politics Institute.
Rick Santorum is leading in Republican presidential polls in Louisiana. But the candidate spent time countering missteps ahead of the Saturday primary.
