Washington, May 30 (ANI): Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has won the Republican presidential primary in Texas.
According to The BBC, with 1,086 delegates, Romney only needed 58 to pass the 1144 delegate mark for the nomination.
"I am honoured that Americans across the country have given their support to my candidacy and I am humbled to have won enough delegates to become the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nominee," Romney said.
Romney has been the presumptive nominee for several weeks, as his rivals withdrew or suspended campaigning for the presidential elections.
Romney will be challenging President Barack Obama for the White House in November.
Romney had gained more over 70 percent of the primary vote.
The delegates are set to officially announce Romney as the Republican nominee in late August when the party will be holding its national convention in Florida.
The next question of the campaign is who will Romney pick as his vice-presidential candidate. (ANI)
