Wednesday Morning Political Headlines: Dyer wins re-election

It’s been a busy 24 hours. Mitt Romney took another step towards the nomination winning three more primaries, including an important Wisconsin Contest. President Barack Obama has unofficially recognized the former Massachusetts Governor as his general election opponent and called him out by name while criticizing the Ryan Budget.

In local political news, Buddy Dyer easily won re-election for the office of Orlando Mayor. He took about 58% of the vote with a dismal turnout. The rest of the incumbents were also victorious which means little change on the city council.

It was a great appetizer for the main course of national politics that await of later this year. Here are your morning political headlines.
