Oh, by the way, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won five more state GOP primaries Tuesday, adding to his delegate count.
While the Wisconsin recall election captured most of the attention, Romney quietly increased his delegate count to 1,398 — well over the 1,144 needed to capture the nomination on the first ballot at the GOP convention in Tampa later this summer.
Romney effectively captured the nomination in May so each primary remaining is gravy. He won easily in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota. California’s 172 delegates offered up the biggest prize.
