WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump on Thursday reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and sets the stage for a bitter fall campaign.

Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party's unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the convention. Among them is Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard.

"I think he has touched a part of our electorate that doesn't like where our country is," Pollard said. "I have no problem supporting Mr. Trump."

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president. Trump has reached 1,238. With 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries on June 7, Trump will easily pad his total, avoiding a contested convention in Cleveland in July.

Trump, a political neophyte who for years delivered caustic commentary on the state of the nation from the sidelines but had never run for office, fought off 16 other Republican contenders in an often ugly primary race.

In related news, the heads of Ted Cruz supporters and the #Never Trump crowd exploded all over the country and the internet. John Kasich could not be reached for comment. It was nap time for Marco Rubio.

It's been absolutely amazing. Has any candidate in the history of US politics prevailed against such opposition? Not in our day and time, perhaps the Civil War period, but from within his own party a Speaker of the House not sure after the delegate count has reached the required total?

Give me a break! It's past time for that dude to step down and find an honest line of work, like John Kasich's dad had. An honest day's pay for an honest day's work.
