New Jersey Puts Romney Over Top for GOP Nomination
- Delegates to the Republican National Convention pushed Mitt Romney past the 1,144-vote threshold to become his party's 2012 presidential nominee.
- The vote puts Romney one step closer to the job he has sought since 2008, when he lost the GOP primary to Sen. John McCain.
- Despite the roll call vote, Romney won’t be formally nominated until Thursday, when he is scheduled to address the convention, Romney adviser Russ Schriefer said.
- Romney and his wife, Ann, arrived in Tampa earlier in the day in advance of Ann Romney’s primetime address Tuesday evening.
