WASHINGTON — A Washington state victory in hand, Mitt Romney is pushing ahead to Tuesday's 10-state bonanza that features contests from Alaska to Ohio to Massachusetts. They also will feature millions in spending and the largest single day of voting yet in the Republicans' topsy-turvy presidential primaries.

The former Massachusetts governor won Saturday night's low-turnout caucuses, adding another win to his tally.

Leading in delegates to the GOP's national convention, Romney looks to defend his front-runner standing even while rivals Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are seeking to keep their candidacies afloat.
