WASHINGTON (AP) – Mitt Romney has won the South Dakota Republican presidential primary, adding to a delegate total that already exceeds the number needed to win the nomination.
Presidential primaries were also held in New Jersey, New Mexico, Montana and California.
A total of 264 delegates were at stake in Tuesday’s contests, and Romney had a chance to win them all. Romney has easily surpassed the total delegates needed to win the nomination. That total is 1,144.
With the primary season winding down, Romney is already in general election mode. He will take on Democrat Barack Obama in the fall.
After Tuesday, only one Republican presidential primary remains, in Utah on June 26.
