Mitt Romney after his win in the Nevada GOP caucuses

*Mitt Romney won Nevada’s Republican caucuses on Saturday night, grabbing the largest chunk of the state’s 28 delegates in the race for the Republican presidential nomination and racking up his second consecutive victory, after winning Florida in the same week.

Speaking at his victory party at the Red Rocks Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Romney did not mention any of his Republican opponents by name, keeping his remarks focused on President Barack Obama. Romney repeated his vow to repeal the federal health care law, increase job growth and increase military spending.

“This president began his presidency by apologizing for America,” Romney said. “He should now be apologizing to America.”

Romney addressed Obama directly when he blamed the president for 36 consecutive months of unemployment above 8 percent–“the red line your own administration drew.”

“I will not just slow the growth of government. I will cut it,” Romney said. “I will not just freeze the government’s share of the economy. I will reduce it.”

Meanwhile at a post-election press conference, Newt Gingrich vowed to press on with his campaign.

“I think we will do better than John McCain did four years ago” in Nevada, Gingrich said. “We will get some delegates here.”
