Romney poised to clinch GOP nomination with Texas win next week

As a Texan, I am very proud that Romney will secure the nomination after winning my state's primary by a large margin. I already voted (early voting) and was happy to do my part to help Romney clinch the nomination in my state.

I am sure you are probably right, I have to admit I did not vote for him in our state, but knew he would win by a landslide (he did) If he doesn't finalize it this coming week, he certainly will the following.

He will clinch the nomination this week.

Republican Primary Tracker: 2012 caucus and primary results, visits and political geography - The Washington Post

Romney has 1065 projected delegates and needs 1144 to secure the nomination. There are no primaries other than TX scheduled for this week, but 155 delegates are up for grabs in the TX primary (152 of them will be awarded based on the results on Tuesday). Delegates are awarded proportionately, but Romney needs only 79 more. Obviously no other candidate will get enough to keep Romney from getting 79.

Nothing gets secured until the convention in Tampa... That's where Ron Paul takes it all.

Paul - 186
Romney - 496

Gingrich - 66
Santorum - 146

Delegates TBD at State Conventions - 1392

Mittens could have 5000 "projected" delegates and it wouldn't matter.

At this point Paul supporters would be better served to get behind Romney and try to move him towards libertarianism. Maybe lobby for Rand Paul for VP. Romney just this week was talking about school choice, a very libertarian idea (conceived by Milton Friedman, if I'm not mistaken).

Ron Paul went R because he thought he could have more real impact there than as a Libertarian Party guy. He was right.

And on a side note remember all the self-styled geniuses who said that Romney would never be able to get to 1144? Where are they all now?

The only thing Romney is getting on Tuesday will be his period...

Right here... Romney won't have 1144 delegates at the Convention in Tampa...

My vote cancelled out your vote.


Projected or actual.

I bet you won't see a concession speech from Paul any time soon, not even in Tampa.
