A political milestone passed yesterday: The presidential primary season is officially over.
Mitt Romney easily won Utah’s primary on Tuesday and padded his delegate total by 40.
Romney officially clinched the GOP nomination in May, but any suspense in the presidential race essentially ended in April when Rick Santorum dropped his White House bid.
Some states might still be tweaking their delegate lists for the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Romney as of today has 1,512 delegates, according to an Associated Press tally. (It took 1,144 delegates to clinch.)
