Senator John McCain won handily yesterday in primaries in Washington State and Wisconsin. In Washington, McCain got 49% of the vote, compared to Mike Huckabee’s 22%. Mitt Romney, who has dropped out of the race, got 20% of the vote there. In Wisconsin, McCain beat Huckabee 55%-37%.
Huckabee will continue on in the race. There are several weeks now until the next set of primaries, which will be delegate-rich states like Ohio and Texas on March 4th.
On the Democratic side, Obama won in Washington and Wisconsin, along with Hawaii, where only the Democrats competed. This gives Obama ten straight wins over Senator Clinton.
