WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has won most of the delegates in a three-state primary sweep, leaving him a little more than 200 delegates shy of the number needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president.
He could get there by the end of the month.
Romney won 84 of the 107 delegates at stake in Tuesday's primaries in North Carolina, Indiana and West Virginia.
He has a total of 940 delegates. It takes 1,144 delegates to clinch the nomination.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul, the only other Republican in the race, has 100 delegates. Paul won six delegates Tuesday, all in North Carolina.
Romney won all 27 delegates at stake in Indiana, 36 delegates in North Carolina and 21 in West Virginia.
