Romney wins Pa. primary

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney has won the Republican presidential primary in Pennsylvania, as well as primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island and New York.

The five primaries are the first since former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum suspended his presidential campaign two weeks ago.

Romney is still more than 400 GOP national convention delegates shy of the nominating majority he needs, according to an Associated Press count.

He started the day with 698 delegates, and needs 1,144 to formally gain the nomination this summer at the party's convention.

There are 209 delegates at stake in Tuesday's primaries.
