Funky McCain Delegate Math

From the LA Times:

Romney won about 280 delegates who will now be urged to back McCain, who began the day with 843 delegates. Huckabee had 242 delegates and Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 14. The Romney delegates would be enough to put McCain past the 1,191 delegates needed for the GOP nomination. Romney urged his delegates to back McCain, though each delegate will make his or her own decision.

843 + 280 does not equal or exceed 1191. It comes close at 1123. Does someone need to work on their math or is there something I am not seeing here? Something is not being reported. They must be assuming he in the process of getting other non committed delegates.

Romney endorses McCain
