With the end of 50 states’ roll call, Mitt Romney is now the official presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

Romney reached the 1,144 delegates needed for the nomination shortly before 6 p.m. as each state took the podium announcing their delegate totals.

The Tampa convention, delayed due to Hurricane Isaac, livened up as the delegates took the stage rallying the GOP crowd behind their nominee.

With just over two months until the election, polls have Romney within percentage points of President Barack Obama.

The Democratic National Convention will take place in Charlotte during the week of September 3.
