Romney Secures 88 Texas Delegates, Clinches Nomination
New York Times ^ | 29 May 2012 | AP Projection

Posted on 05/29/2012 6:33:59 PM PDT by Vigilanteman

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has now secured at least 88 of the 155 delegates at stake in the Texas Primary, bringing his secured delegate total to 1174, 30 more than necessary to win the majority of the delegated needed for the GOP nomination.

With 4% of Texas precincts now reporting, Romney has consistently maintained or increased a 60 point lead over his nearest competitor, Congressman Ron Paul.

In the contested race for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, David Dewhurst is holding a 48% to 31% lead over his nearest rival Ted Cruz in a nine person contest.

It would've been nice if Romney had at least planned a cameo appearance in Texas to thank them for putting him over the top.

I didn’t vote for McCain or Romney in the 2008 or 2012 Texas primaries. BUT the field is already so reduced that my vote in the presidential primary never matters.

Got to hand it to the GOP-E.

They picked the AUTHOR OF ROMNEYCARE and gay marriage
and the vulture corporatist from Wall St.
who tanked Massachusetts and has a history
of liberal judge appointments and backstabbing
conservatives.

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

No objection if the Senate Primary Results take over the discussion on this thread.

The results are updated at the link . . . and there really isn't much more to discuss on the presidential primary.

Well, just as we are now afraid of offending “moderate” muslims, same “moderates” are afraid of offending extremists in the same psychology.

It progresses like this, meekly, to full bore murder acceptance, the intaking into the club of murderers and “leaders”.

It reads like the show “Fatal Encounters next door”.

Nothing good is going to come out the narcissist fanfare to hate any and all opposition to Romney, to demand an easy and granted win of delegates for him like a spoiled annointed child, to never be challenged and criticized.

He is or they made him into an Obama light, and nothing good is going to come out of this, because now the won is going to use that as a precedent.

Let us face it, they do not like to be put on the spot for errors, only for me me me, poor f’n me, reasons are the MO of the corruption of emotional immature judges accross the country.

I know Sarah Palin endorsed Ted Cruz, but for us non-Texans, is Dewhurst just a soft conservative or an out-and-out RINO? Will he be some improvement over Kay Bailey Hutchinson?

Read your post(s) 3 times.

Still can’t make heads or tails out of it.

Hope you’re still muttering into your cups in November.
