McCain – 12 states, 709 delegates
Romney- 11 states, 269 delegates
Huckabee – 6 states, 170 delegates
Ron Paul – 0 states, 16 delegates
1,191 delegates needed out of 2,381.
The Huckabee campaign has called for a “full investigation” into the Washington State Caucus results, and are sending campaign lawyers to the state to help in that pursuit.
“The chairman showed very bad judgement in stopping the voting last night when announcing John McCain had won, when there was less that a 200 vote margin between the two candidates,” Ed Rollins, Huckabee campaign chairman.
