Posted on 05/28/2012 9:15:30 PM PDT by AmonAmarth
Mitt Romney will officially clinch the Republican nomination for President when he secures the 1,144 delegates required to become the party's nominee in the Texas primary later tonight. Romney will also campaign today in two western battleground states, Colorado and Nevada.
The former Governor will begin the day in the northwest Colorado town of Craig where he will hold a rally at Alice Pleasant Park and is scheduled to talk about the economy and energy policy.
According to the Craig Daily Press, the owner of Deer Park Inn sent the Romney campaign a video called The Perfect Storm Over Craig, Colorado and an invitation to the town. The video highlights the communitys dependence on the energy industry and how regulations have caused economic hardships.
A few hours later, Romney will attend two events in Las Vegas. He'll first hold a campaign rally at Somers Furniture store where he'll also talk about the economy. Debbi Somers, the company's owner, is a founding board member of the Women Visionaries and a member of the Womens Business Enterprise National Councils western region affiliate.
His final campaign stop will be at Trump International Tower where he'll attend a fundraiser with Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich. Tickets cost $2,500 per person. Romney was last in Nevada prior to his victory in the state's February 4th

Then it’s official. Everyone should vote for my cat.
This Country definitely needs help. Here in Sarasota, FL I see many people on street corners HOPING for a little bit of spare CHANGE.
Mitt or Obama..
It’s like being asked if I want Coke or Pepsi..
I want orange juice.
How many will bother to vote in the Calif. June primary??
Feel bad for the down-ticket. Can imagine many voters staying home.
Ridiculous having a later primary than many - this has got to change.
I don't know -- I'm pretty sure Willard is a bigger pussy than your cat.
Greaaaaat. I want Jack Ryan, and what do I get? Governor Goodhair and the First Whiner. [facepalm]
He bought and paid for it and destroyed many conservatives with attacks along the way, all with a little aid from the MSM. This is his aspiration, and it’s something he desperately wants and feels entitled to. The GOP Establishment has their man again. We’ll see how well it works this time.
I agree with your post. They should definitely bump up the date to restore relevancy
CA is a non-starter as far as the Rep.presidential nomination is concerned. But there is other work to be done by voting in the CA primary. Voting NO on 2 Props to increase taxes, trying to elect more conservative judges (yeah I know, good luck), and voting for the anti-Rep. establishment in Congressional District race (after vetting the candidate). The Senate races here are very frustrating and downright depressing. Nobody on “our side”, whether Tea Party or RINO has any traction against the two wicked witches from the West.
Anyway, I’m voting.
And before that, “Tea Party is Herd of Cats; Can’t Agree on Nominee.”
The GOPe had more group discipline! For shame.
“The GOPe had more group discipline! For shame.”
The GOPe is entrenched and makes the rules. I said in 2010 the ‘taking our party back’ thing would not work. It is their party. Always has been. Goldwater, Reagan and Palin were anomalies. Rockefeller, Nixon, Ford, Dole, Bush 1, Bush 2, Bush 2.5, Mccain, Romney are the norm. It is back to the Northeastern progressive default setting.
As for me, I am out. Three conservative candidates in I could vote FOR in 32 years is not enought o keep me on the plantation. The rest of you do what you want, and godspeed.
Romney, author of ROmneyCARE, is a CHEATER
Shame on the GOP-E for pushing an ineligible
Change the rule makers of the national committee. We removed the RNC committeemen from Michigan last week. It only takes a few hundred dedicated individuals in each state.
Incidentally, they both voted to change the rules after the vote here in Michigan.

Approximately 6 million votes for conservative candidates.
Approximately 5 million votes for Romney.
You can "blame" the GOPe for uniting their votes behind a single candidate (smart!) if you want... I agree with TheZMan, the problem is that Conservatives didn't unite (stupid!).
And part of the blame goes to Sarah Palin, in my opinion. She didn't come out strong and early for a personal pick. I think if she had done that she would have at least pointed the way to unity. But then again, maybe not. I can hear the sniping here on FR from many had she had done that.
And speaking of FR. There's plenty of shame to go around right here. Go back and read the posts from September to December, 2011. What horrible things were said about good conservatives right here on this site.
I think the party uses manipulators here at FR too.
They don’t post for years and suddenly show up and spend a couple of months steady stream posting attacks on other candidates only to disappear after their final post calling to unite.
I can’t wait for the exciting Brokered Convention I read so much about. Who will win? I am biting my nails in anticipation!
