Romney Sweeps Arkansas, Kentucky Primaries
(KUTV) Presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is expected to secure the republication nomination next week.
Romney swept the Kentucky and Arkansas primaries Tuesday night, leaving him just 71 delegates shy of the 1,144 needed to win the nomination.
With no serious opposition left in the race, Romney is likely to cross that threshold next week when Texas holds its primary.
