Decision 2008: John McCain wins the Republican Nomination, Dems continue.

U.S. Senator John McCain has officially won the Republican Nomination for President of the United States recieving officially 1,195 delegates 4 more than the total needed to clinch the nomination. McCain entered the race, a frontrunner, fell to also-ran near dead status and with wins in NH, SC, and FL he was able to secure the nomination. Fmr. Governor Mike Huckabee has officially withdrawn his candidacy for president and endoresed John McCain. This comes after loses to McCain in Ohio, Texas, Vermont and Rhode Island. Following his victory for the nomination, President of the United States, George W. Bush is reported to tomorrow hand over the leadership of the Republican Party to this party's new nominee. Congrats to Sen. McCain. As you know this site has for a year now been supporting his candidacy and after a roller coaster ride is excited to continue to support him till November. On the Democratic Side, Sen. Barack Obama has won Vermont, and Sen. Hillary Clinton has won Rhode Island, but it is too close to call in Ohio and Texas with less than 15% reporting in btoh. Huge turnout in all 4 states. Hillary holds a double digit lead in Ohio, while Obama leads by single digits in Texas. Both could go either way according to polls, and we will have to wait till the morning probably. I'm leaving town for Washington D.C. so I won't have any posts for the results until I get back Sunday.
