[VIDEO] Tonight the big news is that in all the primaries held tonight in such states as Delaware, Connecticut, and New York Romney has won these primaries. Santorum had dropped out weeks ago but it looks like Gingrich is standing firm as you see in this video but even he noticed his campaign isn't going anywhere fast now. He talks about taking a "realistic" look at his campaign during the next week!
It appears Romney is on his way to the Republican nomination for President of the United States to face Democratic President Barack Obama in November:
Mitt Romney has now won all five Republican presidential primaries Tuesday, effectively ending the GOP nomination battle.Ya know, where is a video of Romney's "victory speech". That's worth posting here tonight because I heard the term optimism as a description of this!
The Associated Press called New York for the former Massachusetts governor not long after polls closed at 9 p.m. EDT. Earlier, Romney was declared the winner in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
Tuesday marked the biggest day of voting in the Republican primaries since Super Tuesday on March 6, but there was little suspense. With former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum out of the race, Romney faced only Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, both of whom were well behind Romney in polls.
A total of 231 delegates were up for grabs on Tuesday, though not all of them will be awarded based on the vote because state party officials also serve as delegates who cast their votes at the party's national convention.
Analysts said Romney still stood a strong chance of collecting 200 delegates or more as he closes in on the 1,144 delegates needed to claim the nomination. The latest Associated Press tally showed Romney came into Tuesday with 698 delegates, well ahead of Santorum's 260. Gingrich had 137 and Paul had 75.
