WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is inching closer to clinching the GOP nomination.
The former governor of Massachusetts has won most of the delegates in the Oregon primary, leaving him 155 delegates shy of the number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination for president.
Romney is expected to get there by the end of the month.
He won at least 16 of the 25 delegates at stake in Oregon, with six delegates undecided as the vote count dragged into Wednesday morning. Romney has a total of 989 convention delegates. It takes 1,144 delegates to win the GOP nomination.
At this point, all of Romney's challengers have stopped campaigning. However, Texas Rep. Ron Paul won at least two delegates and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won at least one.
Romney also won the Nebraska presidential primary, despite no delegates being at stake.
