"It's such an honor to have the citizens who I served as governor as part of our cause," Romney said to supporters in Boston following the wins. "I'm not going to let you down. I'm going to get this nomination."

Early returns showed that Romney took more than two thirds of the vote.

"Where he's known best, we're winning by more than 72 percent," said former Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healy before she introduced Romney at a victory party in Boston.
