◼ Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is in position to win the Maryland, D.C. and Wisconsin primaries on Tuesday, a sweep that would help him capture the majority of the nearly 100 delegates up for grabs and move him beyond the halfway mark in his quest for the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the GOP nomination. - Susan Ferrechio/Washington Examiner
Romney's chief rival, Rick Santorum, skipped Maryland and the District to barnstorm Wisconsin over the past week. While state political experts expect Santorum to do well enough to pick up some of Wisconsin's 42 delegates, they say he's unlikely to win.
Romney is leading Santorum 43 percent to 36 percent in Wisconsin, the largest prize of the day, a Public Policy poll released Monday showed. The poll found the former Massachusetts governor ahead even among the Tea Party supporters whose backing has until now helped keep Santorum's conservative quest alive.
