Mike Huckabee is the projected winner of the West Virginia GOP caucus. CNN and MSNBC called it first ...
Mitt Romney was second; John McCain, a distant third ... The final count per the WVA GOP:
Huckabee 567 VOTES (51%)
Romney 521 VOTES (47%)
McCain 12 VOTES (1%)
“Congratulations to Mike Huckabee who is the winner of 18 of West Virginia’s 30 delegates to the Republican National Convention,” said Bob Fish, CEO of the convention.
Maybe a bad sign for McCain, who needs a good showing in Georgia to solidify his conservative base credentials?
