It’s (Almost) Official: Mitt Romney Clinches GOP Nomination With Win in Texas

After almost a full year on the campaign trail, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has finally been (unofficially) crowned the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.

Romney led the pack when he announced his second run for the White House last June, and he has watched his rivals for the nomination slowly trickle out as their own wins looked increasingly unlikely.

The delegates necessary to put him over the 1,144 necessary for the GOP nomination came in Texas, the lone state to vote this week. Romney entered the day 78 delegates away from the magic number, and on Tuesday CNN projected he would win the state's GOP presidential primary. 152 of the state's 155 delegates were at stake.

He has been the presumptive nominee for weeks, but will not be the official party nominee until the Republican National Convention, set to be held the week of August 27th in Tampa, Florida.

Romney launched his campaign on a warm day last June, telling his supporters gathered at a New Hampshire farm that "Barack Obama has failed America."

"From my first day in office my No. 1 job will be to see that America once again is number one in job creation," he said.

For fun, I've included the speech Mitt Romney delivered in Stratham, New Hampshire when he officially announced his candidacy for President of the United States.
