Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has secured the necessary number of delegates to clinch the GOP nomination, according to The Associated Press.
The AP reported Thursday that Trump hit 1,237 delegates — the magic number that gives him a majority — after a small number of unbound party delegates that told the news service that they would support him.
Trump has been the only remaining GOP candidate in the race since early this month, when rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out.
The presumptive nominee had been very close to clinching the nomination for a little over a week, needing fewer than 100 more delegates, according to the AP delegate tracker. The current count puts Trump at 1,238.
