New York Times ^ | 29 May 2012 | AP Projection

Posted on 05/29/2012 6:33:59 PM PDT by Vigilanteman

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has now secured at least 88 of the 155 delegates at stake in the Texas Primary, bringing his secured delegate total to 1174, 30 more than necessary to win the majority of the delegated needed for the GOP nomination.

With 4% of Texas precincts now reporting, Romney has consistently maintained or increased a 60 point lead over his nearest competitor, Congressman Ron Paul.

In the contested race for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, David Dewhurst is holding a 48% to 31% lead over his nearest rival Ted Cruz in a nine person contest.

Obama is going to portray Mitt as an ultra conservative which will make Mitt move to the left.

It will sour dems and pubbies on Mitt.

I know! We can call you less intellect and you're a "useful idiot? How's that?

Don’t think Dewhurst will get 50%. If Cruz can keep Dewhurst short of the needed 50% win, Cruz will win the runoff in July. Tea Party dudes & chicks, keep finger crossed.

Took him long enough and cost mega millions for him to reach his goal. Of course he had tons of free publicity on his side..thank YOU Faux news.
He should make the speech of a lifetime and reach out to the tea party folks and other conservatives that usually fight to keep candidates like HIM out of DC.
Time for some assurance and a sharp move to the right.

Keeping Dooo-hurst under 50% today will trigger a run-off in July. Keep your fingers crossed if you are a conservative!

Well, whether zero wins or loses in November, it’s then time for conservatives to start a third party. We’ll have a couple of years to fine tune what the generally disorganized tea party has already accomplished. All we need is a plurality.
RINOs, aka GOPE, like Lugar and Chambliss, of whom I am ashamed to say is my senior senator, are nothing but country club aristocrats, or so they fancy themselves.
We need congressional term limits, and some thoughtful preparation for us to secede from the GOPE, which is the same as the traitorous democrat party. They scratch each others backs. Disgusting.

Actually, I've read that this is a brilliant subterfuge by Zero.

Real conservatives will see that claim and die laughing, thereby reducing Republican voter turnout.

I checked several dozen counties in early voting, and Cruz is leading nowhere. The China connection ad ruined him; he did not reply forcefully and convincingly.
