Mitt Romney won Wisconsin’s primary Tuesday night, increasing the pressure on his rivals to exit the GOP presidential race.

The television news networks projected Romney as the winner at 9:30 p.m. ET, about 90 minutes after the polls closed.


With 56 percent of precincts reporting, Romney had 42 percent of the vote, with second-place finisher Rick Santorum taking 38 percent. Ron Paul came in third with 12 percent, followed by Newt Gingrich at 6 percent.

Speaking like a general-election candidate, Romney connected a defense of his personal prosperity to an argument for the economic vision he sees for the nation.
