SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Mitt Romney is adding two more victories to his win column.

Nebraska and Oregon Republicans, as expected, have made clear their preference for the GOP nomination by choosing Romney in Tuesday's presidential primaries.

In Nebraska, the vote amounts to a beauty contest. The state's 32 delegates to the Republican National Convention later this year will be determined at the state convention on July 14.

Oregon has 25 presidential delegates up for grabs and most if not all are going to Romney.

Romney has all but clinched the nomination, and is well on his way to winning the 1,144 delegates needed to get the party nod.
