Romney Cinches GOP Nod With Texas Win

In his second try to win his party’s nomination for president, Mitt Romney clinched the Republican nomination Tuesday with victory in the Texas primary.

The Associated Press reports that Romney reached, and passed, the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination in Ron Paul’s home state. Romney got 69 percent to Paul’s 12 percent.

As one news report put it, “The former Massachusetts governor has reached the nomination milestone with a steady message of concern about the U.S. economy, a campaign organization that dwarfed those of his GOP foes and a fundraising operation second only to that of his Democratic opponent in the general election, President Barack Obama.”

    Waiting on the Paulbots (to) cry foul and complain that nothing is won until the convention. Maybe they’re not crawling out of their holes today.

    Not exactly. This is based on a very faulty estimate from the Associated Press. Here is the link:

    The key word here being “estimate”.

    Here is an alternate site:

    The truth is that nobody will actually know until the convention. Since the AP is the source for almost every delegate count you see on TV or in most major newspapers, if they are off – and they are – so is everyone else.

    For more detailed information, go here:
    You can read through the rules of each state, and get a more clear picture of things.

    Ask yourself, how many delegates from Oklahoma does Romney get? Is it 13, which he won on Super Tuesday? Is it 43, or all of them? Is is something in between? (Answer: it’s in between, and it is at least 15, but not more than 37). If it troubles you that there is no concrete answer, I can’t help you. Every state is like this to one degree or another, and due to massive cheating in many states nationwide, there are challenges and/or legal actions pending in many places (go check out what is going on in Massachusetts, for example).

    I hope that “clarifies” things.
