Romney Wins Washington State Caucuses, Mitt Romney picked up another victory in the race for the Republican presidential nomination late Saturday as he carried his party’s caucuses in the northwestern state of Washington.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney pays for a take out food order in Cincinnati, Ohio. Romney looked set to pick up another victory in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, with US media projecting him as the winner of a contest in the northwestern state of Washington.
Romney declared victory in the contest after returns showed him far ahead of former senator Rick Santorum and Texas congressman Ron Paul, who battled for second place.
With all the ballots counted, Romney finished ahead with 37.6 percent of the vote, Paul was a distant second with 24.8 percent followed closely by Santorum with 23.8 percent.
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich ended the race fourth with just 10.3 percent of the vote.
“I’m heartened to have won the Washington caucuses, and I thank the voters for their support,” Romney said after most of the precincts had reported. “Every day that passes with Barack Obama in the White House is a day in which America’s recovery from the economic crisis is delayed.”
Party officials said there was record turnout for the caucuses, the latest state-by-state race to pick the Republican party’s candidate to challenge Democratic President Obama in November.
