Romney wins Washington caucuses
(CNN) — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win Saturday’s Republican caucuses in Washington state, CNN projects.
At stake in the contest are 40 delegates, as well as a quick shot of momentum heading into Super Tuesday.
Washington’s caucuses come just three days before Super Tuesday, when 10 states hold primaries and caucuses. And because of that, all four major GOP presidential candidates campaigned in the state, hoping a strong finish there would carry over to Tuesday.
Before CNN’s projection was announced, state GOP chairman Kirby Wilbur predicted a win for either Romney or Texas Rep. Ron Paul. He also reported a large turnout.
