SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The state Republican Party says final election results give Mitt Romney 18 pledged convention delegates from Oregon.

Romney also has the support of three Oregon "superdelegates" who aren't bound by election results. He's already secured support from more than the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination for president.

The GOP's final delegate tally, released this week, is based on results of the May primary. Rick Santorum and Ron Paul will take three delegates each to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Newt Gingrich will take one.
