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:
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.
