Romney sweeps 5 primaries; redistricting shakes up Congressional races

Washington (CNN) - Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney picked up more ammo in his quest for the White House, sweeping primaries in Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota and California on Tuesday night.

Though he had already won enough delegates - 1,144 - to clinch the Republican presidential nomination by last week, Romney technically remains the presumptive nominee until the party's convention in August.

    So, we have a choice. Obama, or Obama lite. I will vote for Mitt because of the poor job Obama has done so far, but I don't think Mitt will do veary good eather. Why must we pick one of these losers?

    Sweeps primaries? CNN get a hold of yourself. Of course he swept the primaries. HE IS THE ONE RUNNING!!!
    I would be more interested in how many came out to vote. It doesn't seem that the rethugs are into the limp one.

    Why doesn't CNN discuss the LOW turnouts? Also, all of the primaries could have been summed up into one Ticker. This praise for a DEAD STORY, because Romney has already clinched the nomination, is annoying!! I would win all of my races too if NO ONE was running against me... Jeez!

    Obama 2012 because it's The Only Trusted Way Forward and it must take place because the "Fierce Urgency of NOW!!!"
