It's official guys. Mitt Romney's the nominee. Here's the massive story AP has probably had in the can for months.


The Associated Press delegate count shows that Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination during Tuesday’s primary. Early returns show Romney posting a big win in Texas.

It’s a triumph of endurance for a candidate who came up short four years ago and had to fight hard this year as voters flirted with a carousel of GOP rivals.

In other news, water is still wet. We spent like a year freaking out over this, and it’s the result everyone expected. Remember that.
