WV: Romney Top Vote-Getter in First Round

By Rick Weiss
The first round of Republican delegate voting is complete in West Virginia. But with no candidate winning a majority, the process is set to go into a second round with the first round's top three vote-getters: Romney, Huckabee, and McCain. Ron Paul is toast. The first round voting produced these numbers:

Romney 464
Huckabee 375
McCain 176
Ron Paul 118

Huckabee, Paul and Romney all showed up at the convention this morning to give speeches before the voting began. Former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer spoke as a stand-in for McCain.

"Everybody here has been enthusiastic," said Bob Fish, vice-chairman of the state's Republican Party and CEO of the West Virginia GOP Presidential Convention.

Second round voting is set to start at about 1:30 and could be complete within an hour after that.
