President Obama Officially “Earns” the Democratic Nomination
Matt | On 04, Apr 2012
Here’s a bit of “State the Obvious” news you needed for the day.
Among buried somewhere beneath the headlines of Romney’s triumphant sweep of the Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., President Obama crossed a milestone in the 2012 campaign.
He officially secured the Democratic nomination for a second term as President of the United States.
Before you pop bottles of expensive liquor (or go into a deep Republican depression), please know that it’s all a game of mathematics. The president was the only Democratic candidate on the ballot in many of the states that voted. Running unopposed, he grabbed all of the 2,778 Democratic delegates needed to get the nomination.
No one should be surprised that the president achieved this feat. More importantly, we all are wondering when the Republicans are going to wrap things up on their end.
I’m just ready for the death-match between Obama and (presumably) Mitt Romney, especially during the debates!
