Mitt Romney picked up the support from a diverse pool of voters in Illinois, including women and younger voters.  State Treasurer and Romney Campaign Chair Dan Rutherford says that's because Romney isn't afraid of straight talk.

Rutherford says that was a great answer because government can no longer afford to provide free stuff.  He says it's time to figure out how to turn the economy around and put people back to work.  Romney won the state's primary with about 47-percent of the vote, with Rick Santorum falling in behind him with 35-percent of the vote. 

The win puts Romney in good position to secure the GOP presidential nomination and face President Obama in the General Election.
