Huckabee Wins Kansas, Louisiana GOP Contests; Washington Too Close to Call

From Fox News:
Mike Huckabee also had a good day Saturday, pulling out a strong win, 60 to 24 percent, over John McCain in the Kansas Republican caucuses earlier in the day and then taking Louisiana in a sqeaker. Huckabee was at 44 percent to 42 percent for McCain in Louisiana. However, Huckabee did not get to the 50 percent threshold needed to gain the delegates up for grabs from the state, and they will remain uncommitted going into the national convention in September.

The Washington Republican caucus results were too close to call late into the evening on Saturday, and party officials said they would resume counting on Sunday. McCain was leading Huckabee in the polling with 26 to 24 percent with 78 percent reporting. Ron Paul was close behind with 21 percent.
