John Sununu formally nominated Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential nominee.

Twitchy will cover the roll call and the official nomination live. Stay tuned for updates.

Buzz kill!

State bragging rights are rampant.

Heh.

Getting close.

It’s official! Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee for President of the United States. New Jersey puts him over the top.
