Romney Wins Washington Caucuses

Mitt Romney won the Washington GOP presidential caucuses, NBC News reported, giving the former Massachusetts governor new momentum heading into Super Tuesday. With 99 percent of presidential preference results in, Romney had 38 percent of the vote; Ron Paul had 25 percent, followed by Rick Santorum with 24 percent. "The voters of Washington have sent a signal that they do not want a Washington insider in the White House," Romney said in a statement late Saturday. Romney’s victory is largely symbolic, as the state’s 43 delegates won’t be formally allotted until a state convention in June. But after last week's wins in Michigan and Georgia, Romney continues to build momentum going into Super Tuesday, where 437 delegates will be up for grabs in 10 states.
