What’s the Loop reading this morning?

Big time — Sweeping last night’s primaries means big things for the Romney campaign, which “will grow from about 80 employees to around 400” in the next few weeks, our colleagues Phil Rucker and Dan Balz report. More RNC support and coordination is in the works, too...

A tweet is forever — Mitt Romney’s new foreign-policy advisor has some Twitter baggage. Once Richard Grenell was named to the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign team, he tried to scrub some of the tweets, which were snarky barbs often directed at womens’ appearances, our colleagues Nia-Malika Henderson and Aaron Blake report.

On the town — And here’s a happy “spotted” item: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) went shopping yesterday in Eastern Market to get ready for a dinner sponsored by EMILY’s List.

Old news — Whoa, wait.. Jackie Kennedy smoked? So says this interesting gallery of “12 things you didn’t know” about the elegant former first lady.
