The Republicans in the United States likely have their next presidential nominee: Mitt Romney.
Romney is the Republican who will most likely become the party’s nominee for president.
That’s because his closest rival, Rick Santorum, stepped down this week.
The Republicans have been going through a long and intense process of selecting their new nominee.
Romney—who will still have to be officially elected by the party’s members—would replace former president George W. Bush.
Unless something major happens to upset the apple cart, Romney will become the new nominee.
