"I congratulate Gov. Romney on winning the Texas primary and securing the delegates needed to be our party's official nominee at our convention in Tampa," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: After Six Years of Trying and Millions of Dollars Spent, Mitt Romney Finally Secures Nomination


Washington, DC – DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on Mitt Romney securing the number of delegates needed to become the Republican nominee:


“Tonight, after six years of trying and millions of dollars spent, and after a year of tepid support against one of the weakest fields in history, Mitt Romney has finally secured enough delegates to become the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.  Romney may have finally gained enough delegates to become the nominee, but what’s been truly remarkable about his path to the nomination is how much damage he's left in his wake as he enters the general election.


“On women’s rights, Mitt Romney’s message has been clear: he wants to ‘get rid of’ federal funding for Planned Parenthood and refuses to say whether he would have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law. When it comes to educating our kids, Romney said he didn't think smaller class sizes help students. And when it comes to jobs and the economy, Mitt Romney's economic scheme is familiar and troubling: more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street--the same formula that benefited a few, but crashed our economy and punished the middle class.


“On what should be a good news day for Romney, he once again reminds us of his commitment to ‘Romney Economics’ and the far-right wing of his party with his pandering to Donald Trump. Mitt Romney’s lack of moral leadership is striking: he values the support of folks like Trump – no matter how extreme their views. This November, Americans will have a clear choice between an economy that is built to last and one that is built on outsourcing, loopholes, and risky financial deals that jeopardize our entire economy and threaten the security of the middle class.  Those failed policies are not what Americans want, and that’s why they won’t support Mitt Romney in the fall.”
