Romney stays optimistic before Tuesday votes despite unwavering challengers

Washington (CNN) - Consistently defiant rivals are doing little to hamper Mitt Romney's momentum ahead of nominating contests on Tuesday in what is shaping up to be more of a general election fight between the former Massachusetts governor and President Barack Obama's re-election team.

Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich on Sunday insisted they will stay in the race until a candidate reaches 1,144 delegates - the necessary threshold to win the Republican presidential nomination - while acknowledging Romney currently has the advantage.
