is all set to lock the 1,144 delegates needed to wrap up the GOP presidential nomination at the Republican’s August gathering. However, it is expected to become official on Tuesday when Texas voters would likely shove Romney over the finish line in the GOP race for presidency, formalizing his position as Obama’s competitor.
"It'll be a big day tomorrow," Romney told reporters aboard his campaign plane, according to Seattle PI. "I'm looking forward to the good news.”
Although nomination of the Massachusetts governor has been almost guaranteed for a month, yet the day stands for the conclusion of many years of struggle. The long struggle of primaries successfully concluded on 3rd April with Romney’s win in Wisconsin.
Three weeks down the line and Romney went back to New Hampshire, the place where he kick started his drive on a desolate farm one year back this week, to declare the mantle of contender.
“I believe in America,” Romney said. “I believe in freedom. I believe in opportunity. I believe that when the Founders crafted this country, they gave us not only political freedom, the right to choose who would represent us in Washington, they gave us economic freedom, the freedom to choose our course in life.”
No one anointed the Massachusetts governor. There was the awe-inspiring uproar in South Carolina, where Newt Gingrich flung him off position; where he hesitated during the debate while making efforts to elucidate his take on taxes.
Following a year of disapproval that he did not have the power or sagacity to compete President Obama, Mitt Romney has come out from the staining primary as an alarming rival. Romney is now a more eloquent and disciplined competitor than he was some months ago.
“ We have two courses we can follow: One is to follow in the pathway of Europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs," NZ Herald quoted Romney as saying. "The other is to commit to preserve America as the strongest military in the world, second to none, with no comparable power anywhere in the world."
