Romney won big in Illinois, Obama’s home state. Second place Santorum didn’t come close. Romney now has 560 delegates compared to Santorum’s 246, Gingrich with 141 and Paul with 66. I wouldn’t declare Romney the nominee just yet but since he has more delegates than the rest combined, it is beginning to look that way.
