McCain has nomination in bag — AP, CNN

Arizona Sen. John McCain has all the delegates he needs to secure the Republican nomination, the Associated Press and CNN say.

The AP’s count of delegates says McCain picked up enough delegates from wins tonight in Vermont, Ohio and Texas. He’s expected to win Rhode Island, too, where polls closed just a few minutes ago.

He needed 1,191 delegates, or at least 50 percent of those going to the Republican National Convention in September.
