Look, I am not proud that the Republican party in WV decided to support Huckabee, but I am sure tickled pink that we may be the first state to start the end of the Romney campaign:
Republican Mike Huckabee scored the first Super Tuesday victory, winning all 18 delegates at stake in West Virginia.
The former Arkansas governor won with the support of 52 percent of the state’s GOP convention delegates on the second round of balloting. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came in second with 47 percent of the vote, and Sen. John McCain was backed by 1 percent of the delegates.
Romney was ahead in the first round of voting in Charleston but failed to get the majority needed to win.
A couple quick things:
1.) I have said it before, I will say it again, Mitt Romney is the Manchurian Candidate for the Oligarchy. The same folks who have backed the Bush disaster to this very day are pushing this guy down your throats. Check the poll numbers. I, for one, have had enough of the Bush years.
2.) It is not surprising that Huckabee has a broad base of support here- we are, sadly enough, a lot like Arkansas in many ways. Additionally, West Virginians love charismatic leaders. You might want to check out this post on a legend in West Virginia, A. James Manchin.
3.) I am in a list making mood today.
