PoliticsUSA: Republicans: The dye is cast for Romney's wwin in oncoming primaries and caucuses

Romney Wins Nevada Caucuses

RENO, Nev.—Mitt Romney handily won the Nevada caucuses Saturday, capping a pivotal week that saw him regain his front-runner status on the strength of a hard-fought win in Florida.
With 41% of the precincts counted, the former Massachusetts governor was the top pick of 42% of Republican caucus-goers, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich a distant second with 26.5% of the vote and Texas Rep. Ron Paul in third at 18%.
Mr. Romney's back-to-back, double-digit victories in Florida and Nevada cement his status as the candidate to beat heading into the first extended lull of the Republican nominating contest.
