On April 24, the night Mitt Romney triumphed in five primary contests and essentially clinched the Republican presidential nomination, the former Massachusetts governor delivered his victory speech in Manchester, the largest city in the swing state of New Hampshire. This address, CNN noted, marked Romney's "pivot to the general election campaign." WMUR, the ABC affiliate in New Hampshire, declared, "Romney Delivers Rousing Speech in Manchester." Fox Nationdubbed the address, "Romney's Killer Speech." The New York Timesreported that Romney "laid out a succinct argument for his economic leadership."
