The Romney campaign may be breathing a sigh of relief this morning. A loss in Mitt's home state would have been devastating, which makes the victory all the sweeter. Rick Santorum came close to pulling off a coup, but in the end Romney won with 41 percent of the votes. It was more decisive in Arizona and that means Romney had a very good night.
