Rick Santorum was the favorite in our precinct today and from what I hear the favorite of Whatcom County. However, at this mornings caucus I put forward Mitt Romney as my favored candidate just as I had done in 2008. In 2008 our precinct went to Ron Paul, the State went to John McCain if I remember correctly and Mitt Romney went no where. So this time around I was very excited about the statewide results.
BELLEVUE, Wash., – Mitt Romney breezed to an easy victory in the Washington state Republican presidential caucuses on Saturday, US media projected, as he gained another momentum boost heading into next week’s crucial "Super Tuesday" contests in 10 states.
With about 58 percent of votes counted in the non-binding straw poll, Romney had 36 percent support, followed by US Representative Ron Paul at 25 percent, former US Senator Rick Santorum at 24 percent and former US House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich at 11 percent.
I appreciate the very conservative values of Rick Santorum, but with Mitt Romney we get equally impressive conservative values and a more stately mature presence. Throw in Mitt Romney’s proven executive experience in both public and private sectors and I think he is a win win win for our nation.
