Hoping to further finalize the primary process, Romney supporters are hoping for victories in all five states.

UPDATE:

IT’S A CLEAN SWEEP FOR ROMNEY!

Congrats!

A better America began tonight!

After 43 primaries and caucuses, many long days and not a few long nights, I can say with confidence – and gratitude – that you have given me a great honor and solemn responsibility.
. . .
To all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer,” he said. “A better America begins tonight.”
~ Mitt Romney

Text of Governor Romney’s victory speech, given tonight in Manchester, NH, may read here.

Video of Romney’s victory speech:

“Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth… what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama.

Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?” ~ Mitt Romney
