Politics / campaign 2012

Romney Wins D.C. Primary

April 3, 2012

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney notched another victory in his climb toward the GOP nomination, winning the District of Columbia’s primary as expected, NBC News projected. Romney will take home 16 delegates in the winner-take-all contest.

Romney didn’t face much of a fight in the nation’s capital, where chief rival Rick Santorum didn’t even manage to make it onto the ballot, although former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has drastically scaled back his campaign recently, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, were. 

D.C. Republicans make up only 6 percent of all registered voters in the District, and they tend to be businessmen, lobbyists and other political professionals who are major contributors to Romney’s formidable fundraising machine.

 

Before Tuesday’s contests, the former Massachusetts governor had 572 delegates, exactly half of the 1,144 he needs to secure the nomination, while Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, had 272.

Romney also has won the Maryland primary, according to CNN. That leaves results out only in Wisconsin, which also held its primary Tuesday.
