Romney campaign first to declare victory
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- After Thursday's Republican presidential debate, former Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign was the first to release a statement declaring victory on behalf of its candidate.

"Tonight at the Reagan Library, Governor Romney stood out as the best candidate as a result of his outlining a vision for the policies needed to bring conservative change to Washington," communications director Matt Rhoades said in the statement. "On every question posed and on every issue debated, Governor Romney clearly demonstrated he has both the proven record and the leadership capabilities required to win the Republican Party's nomination and lead America toward a brighter future.

He added, "Voters learned tonight that with Governor Romney's strong leadership, there is no problem America cannot solve."
