by Joseph Earnest  May 30, 2012


Newscast Media AUSTIN, TexasAccording to official results from the Texas Secretary of State, Mitt Romney overwhelmingly won the primary in Texas with 69 percent of the vote, securing the GOP nomination.


Romney did not appear in Texas but released a statement on his Facebook page saying, "I am humbled to have won enough delegates to become the Republican Party's nominee. Whatever challenges lie ahead, we will settle for nothing less than getting America back on the path to prosperity."


In the Senate race, David Dewhurst won 45 percent of the vote against his Republican rival Ted Cruz who won 34 percent.  Cruz received an endorsement from Sarah Palin, whose clout has been tested in the primary and will be tested in the runoff.  Palin also supported Newt Gingrich who dropped out of the race after a losing several key states including Florida.


Romney will now focused his attacks on Barack Obama in preparation for the general, in which pro-Romney groups reportedly plan to spend over $1 billion to unseat Obama. The entire Texas primary results can be viewed here. (pop-up)
