0 US election: Mitt Romney grows Republican nomination with Texas crucial win

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney addresses supporters in Las Vegas after clinching the Republican presidential nomination with a win in the Texas primary on Tuesday.

It's a triumph of endurance for the candidate who fought hard to win over sceptical conservative voters he must now fire up for the campaign against President Barack Obama.

Mr Romney, 65, outlasted a carousel of Republican rivals who dropped out of the state-by-state primary contest.

He accused the current president of being out of touch with the needs of small enterprise.
"This president doesn't understand that because he hasn't lived that. And instead, on almost every dimension he's made it harder for our economy to come back and to put people to work," he told supporters.

"I want more jobs for your kids and for you."
Republicans won't officially nominate Mr Romney until late August at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida
