Donald Trump has been the presumptive Republican Party nominee since May 4, when John Kasich bowed out of the race. However, according to a delegate count released Thursday by the Associated Press, Trump has reached the 1,237 delegate threshold to officially clinch the nomination and avoid a contested convention:
The AP reports that Trump was has reached 1,238 delegates, put over the 1,237 needed to win the nomination by a small number of the party’s unbound delegates who said they would support him at the convention. Trump will most likely add more delegates to his total before the convention in Cleveland, giving him a comfortable victory.
Now that Trump’s the GOP nominee, he should announce a running mate soon. Who do you think should be his vice president? Click HERE to cast your vote in the second round of Vice President Apprentice!
