    Second Topic - With Win in IL and Huge Delegate Lead, is Romney Inevitable?

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney added to his lead in the race for delegates Tuesday by winning the Republican presidential primary in Illinois. Romney won at least 41 delegates in Illinois and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won at least 10. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul were shut out. Romney leads the overall race for delegates with 563, including endorsements from Republican National Committee members who automatically attend the convention and can support any candidate they choose. Santorum has 263 delegates, Gingrich has 135 and Paul has 50. But all 4 seem absolutely committed to sticking it out to the bitter end. Paul Kengor has the analysis.
