It's semi-official, Mitt Romney is now the projected winner of enough delegates to win the Republican presidential nomination.
He now has more than the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination.
The candidate released a statement Tuesday saying, in part, that he's "humbled" to win the delegates needed.
The contest effectively ended in April when Rick Santorum ended his challenge to Romney, and the former Massachusetts governor has campaigned since then in the role of presumptive nominee.
