Romney Wins Puerto Rico, Continues Road to Republican Nomination

Not all of the votes in Puerto Rico have been counted as of press time, but it is hard to believe that Mitt Romney will not walk away with another victory in Puerto Rico in the Republican Primaries.

So far, Romney holds 83% of the votes in the territory. Currently in second place is Rick Santorum. Santorum is the owner of 8% of the votes. Newt Gingrich has 3% and Ron Paul is sitting with a low 1% of the overall vote.

If, and most likely when, Romney is officially declared the winner, he will walk away with the 20 delegates offered up by Puerto Rico.

With over 500 delegates to his name so far, Romney is nearly half way to the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination. Santorum is far behind with only 239 delegates. Gingrich and Paul are even further from gaining victory with 100 and 69 delegates respectively.

The remaining Republican primaries this month are Illinois on the 20th and Louisiana on the 24th.

Many are expecting that it is only a matter of time until Gingrich and Paul realize that this is Romney’s race to win and that their efforts are fruitless. And while Santorum is still mathematically in the running, based on projections he too has little chance of defeating Romney.
