Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney won all five primaries which were held on Tuesday. The former Massachusetts governor already had amassed a sufficient number of delegates to win the nomination after coming in pole position in the Texas contest last week.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Romney won 171 of the 172 delegates which were at stake in California. He pocketed 20 out of 23 in New Mexico and 27 out of 28 in South Dakota. In New Jersey, Mr. Romney won all 50.
In Montana, because the results of Tuesday’s primary are non-binding, most of the delegates to the GOP National Convention will be selected at the state Republican party convention in Missoula on June 16.
All U.S. states apart from Utah have now held their Republican primaries. The Treasure State will hold its contest on June 26. A total of 40 delegates will be up for grabs.
Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who remains in the race despite announcing three weeks ago that he would no longer be campaigning in the remaining primaries, has so far amassed 137. Dr. Paul did not win a single delegate on Tuesday.
