John McCain, the anointed Republican frontrunner whom the brave souls at CPAC endorsed through gritted teeth, might lose all three contests tonight to Mike Huckabee.
[A]s of right now, of three Republican contests held today, it looks likely that Mike Huckabee will win all three.
We already know about Kansas, which was a blowout for Huckabee. With 62% of precincts reporting Huckabee is up by 8 point over McCain in Louisiana. And Huckabee is ahead of McCain by 3 points in Washington state with 37% of the caucuses there reporting.
Huge swathes of the Republican party loathe the guy, but since governor cellophane dropped out of the race primary voters don’t have anybody else to turn to. Except Mike Huckabee.
Huckenfreude obviously won’t win, even if he does make the next few months a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
It’s still a close call, but it looks like the rampaging McCain juggernaut just barely scraped together a win in Washington state.
