Romney builds on big lead in race for delegates

WASHINGTON (AP) - Mitt Romney added to his big lead in the race
for convention delegates Tuesday with wins in Republican
presidential primaries in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware and
Pennsylvania.
Romney won at least 52 delegates Tuesday and was likely to win a
lot more before the night was over. A total of 209 delegates were
at stake in five states. Voters also went to the polls in New York.
Romney had a total of 750 delegates. It takes 1,144 delegates to
win the Republican nomination to run against President Barack Obama
in November. The other two Republican candidates still in the race,
Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, were far behind. Gingrich had 137
delegates and Paul had 78.

known for several days because delegates were elected directly on
the ballot and they were not identified by which candidate they
support.
