Huckabee Now an Impossibility

After last night’s wins by John McCain, it is now mathematically impossible for Mike Huckabee to win the nomination.

Here is what John McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, has to say:

“The results from tonight’s primary elections in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC, make it mathematically impossible for Governor Huckabee to secure the Republican nomination for president,” Davis wrote in the document, first obtained by Politico. “He now needs 950 delegates to secure the required 1,191. But in the remaining contests there are only 774 delegates available. He would need to win 123% of remaining delegates.”

Romney Endorses McCain

Now on CNN. Mitt Romney announces he endorses John McCain for President and instructed his delegates to vote for John McCain at the convention.

McCain currently has 832 delegates according to CNN. Romney has 286 delegates. If all of Romney’s delegates support McCain, as of today, McCain has 1,118 delegates. 1,191 delegates are needed for the nomination.
