Trump clinches Republican nomination

Washington, May 27 (IANS) Real-estate mogul Donald Trump has exceeded the minimum number of delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination, media reports said on Thursday.

By securing 1,238 delegates, one more than the magic number required, Trump has wrapped up victory in the Republican primary season and avoided a contested convention that some of his political enemies within the Grand Old Party had been seeking, EFE news reported.

The candidate was pushed over the top when a small group of unbound delegates said they would support him at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July, according to media reports.

Trump is expected to further add to his delegate count after June 7 primaries in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota.
