Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks at a Super Tuesday night gathering with his family on March 6, 2012 in Boston, Massachusetts. Mitt Romney celebrated Super Tuesday wins in Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia. Super Tuesday could play a vital role in the nomination of the Republican candidate as ten states hold their primaries or caucuses on the same day.
Mitt Romney finally took enough of a lead in Ohio for the Associated Press and others to call it for Romney over rival Rick Santorum. Vermont, Virginia and Massachusetts and Idaho have been called for Romney. Newt Gingrich won his home state of Georgia, and Tennessee, Oklahoma and North Dakota have been called for Rick Santorum.
