Mitt Romney Scores Overwhelming Victory In Puerto Rico
Not entirely surprisingly, Mitt Romney has scored an overwhelming win in Puerto Rico’s Primary:
Mitt Romney will win Sunday’s Republican presidential primary in Puerto Rico, CNN projects, based on vote results obtained from local party and election officials.
At 6:50 p.m. ET, with about 11% of total ballots accounted for, the former Massachusetts governor had a substantial lead with more than 11,500 votes — or 82% of the votes.
Rick Santorum was a distant second, at 9% with more than 1,200 votes.
The other two candidates, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, were further behind with 3% and 1% of the vote respectively.
Assuming Romney stays above 50% when the final numbers are in, which seems likely, he will get all 20 of Puerto Rico’s delegates to the Republican National Convention.
