ROMNEY NOW OFFICIAL
After a contentious nominating process where more than eight candidates were the flavor of the month, Mitt Romney has numerically sealed the nomination with a crushing win in the Texas primary. Texas was supposed to be the last stand of Rick Santorum. Newt Gingrich had hopes there too hoping to reprise Ronald Reagan’ds win in 1976 that almost brought the Gerald Ford campaign to its knees. Romney is it. He has the votes and now goes into a convention that is united behind him. There might not be much ardor for him but there is an almost blind hatred of anything related to Barack Obama. Mitt is the guy and the strategy will unfold for the general election campaign. You may see an earlier start o the fall contest than ever before. But tonight, Romney has climbed the mountain and is king of the delegate hill. He is nominated. Now on to November after the running mate selection and the convention.
