Romney wins Nebraska presidential primary

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is adding another victory to his win column.

Nebraska Republicans, as expected, have made clear their preference for the GOP nomination by choosing Romney in Tuesday's presidential primary.

The vote amounts to a beauty contest. The state's 32 delegates to the Republican National Convention later this year will be determined at the state convention on July 14.

Romney has all but clinched the nomination, and is well on his way to winning the 1,144 delegates needed to get the party nod.

Also Tuesday, Oregon is deciding whether to give its 25 presidential delegates to Romney. And the state is expected to do so.
