While waiting on the election results to come in tonight… check out these 2 reports I ran across earlier today from Fox News
- Mitt Romney was inching closer to officially claiming the Republican presidential nomination as Arkansas and Kentucky voted in primaries Tuesday… With no serious opposition left, the former Massachusetts governor was certain to pad his lead in the hunt for delegates to the GOP's nominating convention in late August. If he dominates Tuesday as expected, Romney should reach the number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination next week, when Texas voters go to the polls…

- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is declining to renew the endorsement he gave Barack Obama four years ago, when he called Obama “a transformational figure.”…

Powell not ready to endorse Obama for re-election
Yeah… Mr. Powell all KINDS of screwed up when he went out of his way to back Obama for President a few years back. And he now SOOO knows IT too!
States left to vote - (Pledged/Unpledged) Delegates up for Grabs:
Today, Tuesday, May 22nd, we have Arkansas (33/3) and Kentucky (42/3) voting. We end the month on May 29th in Texas (152/3). On June 5th we have 5 primaries and they are California (169/3), New Jersey (50/0), Montana (0/26), New Mexico (20/3) and South Dakota (25/3). Utah (40/0) will be the last state to vote this year and that will be on June 26th.

As of Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Info tallies from Fox News/AP
1)  Mitt Romney
2)  Rick Santorum
3)  Newt Gingrich

With the Texas Primary coming up at the end of the month, May 29th, and all its Delegates up for grabs, (152/3 winner takes all,) well… this will surely put Mitt Romney well over the top, (being it is already a foregone conclusion that Mitt will win Texas hands down.) In other words… after the Texas Primary is up and all the votes counted, Mitt will have FINALLY… OFFICIALLY… CLINCHED! … The Republican Presidential Candidate Nomination!
