WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Mitt Romney has clinched the Republican party's 2012 presidential nomination.
He finally secured the nod with a win in the Texas primary Tuesday night.
Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination.
Romney said he's honored and humbled to become the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nominee. He also expressed confidence in his chances of winning the White House this fall.
Earlier in the day, the former governor of Massachusetts kept his focus on President Obama, attacking the president's economic policies.
"We need to have presidents who understand how this economy works - day to day, small business, middle sized business, big business - I do. I want to use that experience to get us to work again," Romney said.
Romney's nomination won't become official until the Republican National Convention in August.
