Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The winning of the primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia have put Romney into an almost certain position to become the GOP presidential nominee for the general election.

As it becomes more likely that Romney will cinch the GOP nomination, he is now shifting gears to focus on running for the presidency. The central issue for his campaign: the economy.
