Romney Wins Republican Nomination In Texas
(KUTV) Romney clinched the Texas Primary, giving him more than the 1,144 delegates needed to claim the Republican presidential nomination.
Romney visited Las Vegas for a fundraiser with Donald Trump Tuesday.
Trump endorsed Romney’s campaign earlier this year, and has the ability to raise a lot of money to help Romney.
The White House is slamming Romney for not standing up to Donald Trump who continues to question President Obama’s citizenship.
The Obama campaign issued a statement saying: "If Mitt Romney lacks the backbone to stand up to a charlatan like Donald Trump because he's so concerned about lining his campaign's pockets, what does that say about the kind of president he would be?"
For now, Romney will earn cash and campaign as the presumptive republican nominee.
He won’t be officially nominated until August at the G.O.P. convention in Tampa.
