Mitt Romney will win Tuesday's primaries in Oregon and Nebraska, taking 73 percent of the vote in Oregon with 60 percent of precincts reporting at the time of this writing, and 70.9 percent of the vote in Nebraska with nearly all votes tallied. Eager to battle Obama on the economy, Romney said in a speech at a hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, "A prairie fire of debt is sweeping across Iowa and our nation and every day we fail to act we feed that fire with our own lack of resolve."
