Mitt Romney handily won the Nevada caucuses Saturday, capping a pivotal week that saw him regain his front-runner status on the strength of a hard-fought win in Florida.
With 41% of the precincts counted, the former Massachusetts governor was the top pick of 42% of Republican caucus-goers, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich a distant second with 26.5% of the vote and Texas Rep. Ron Paul in third at 18%. Mr. Romney's back-to-back, double-digit victories in Florida and Nevada cement his status as the candidate to beat heading into the first extended lull of the Republican nominating contest.
"This is not the first time you have given me your vote of confidence, and this time, I'm going to take it to the White House," a buoyant Mr. Romney told supporters in Las Vegas, referring to his 2008 win in the state.
