Romney to inch closer to clinching party nod

WASHINGTON (AP) - His nomination all but assured, Mitt Romney is
set to inch closer to clinching the GOP presidential nomination
with a presidential primary in Oregon.
Oregon and Nebraska are taking their turns weighing in on the
Republican race, though Nebraska's contest is little more than a
beauty contest.
The major difference when Republicans go to polls on Tuesday is
the lack of opponents for Romney.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul became the last Romney rival to step aside,
saying in a statement Monday that he would stop spending money to
compete in primaries. He urged his fervent supporters to continue
working at the state party level to cause havoc for Romney.
Nebraska voters will also select the Republican candidate to
face Democrat Bob Kerrey in the state's U.S. Senate race.
