All Eyes on Illinois

Steve Benen on the "road ahead" for Mitt Romney after losing to Rick Santorum in AL and Miss.:

What's more, the road ahead isn't exactly friendly. The Missouri caucuses are this Saturday, and Romney isn't expected to do well, and the Louisiana primary a week later should also be a tough haul. The Illinois primary on Tuesday will apparently become a major contest, but with Gingrich flailing, the former governor can no longer count on the anti-Romney vote being split. [emphasis added]

Love the idea of Illinois deciding this for the GOPers!
