Even though Donald Trump was the only remaining candidate left in the Republican presidential race he still had not passed the 1,237 delegate threshold one needs to be the considered the nominee. Without passing the delegate threshold, establishment Republicans were going to continue to search for ways to somehow steal the nomination away from the people’s choice.
Now it’s official. As reported by Breitbart, Trump has secured the nomination by picking up enough unbound delegates to put him over the mark. He now currently sits at 1,238 delegates. There are still 303 delegates remaining in the upcoming states, but the remaining primaries are a mere formality now.
