ELECTION ’08: Huckabee gets Louisiana

CNN and MSNBC are projecting Huckabee the winner of the Louisiana primary. That gives Huckabee 2 out of 3 races. So far the totals are:

3880 of 3966 Precincts Reporting – 98%

  Name Party Votes Vote %  
  Huckabee, Mike GOP 67,554 44%  
  McCain, John GOP 64,732 42%  
  Romney, Mitt GOP 9,773 6%  
  Paul, Ron GOP 8,193 5%  
  Thompson, Fred GOP 1,529 1%  
  Giuliani, Rudy GOP 1,516 1%  
  Keyes, Alan GOP 787 1%  
  Curry, Jerry GOP 508 0%  
  Hunter, Duncan GOP 354 0%  
  Gilbert, Daniel GOP 179 0%  
  Tancredo, Tom GOP 104 0%  

I thought it would be super weird of both the winners of the Iowa caucuses ended today with a sweep. Huckabee was leading in the Washington caucuses for a while, but now it seems McCain is ahead.
