McCain lost narrowly to Rev Huckabee in Louisiana and got his clock cleaned in KS with Rev Huckabee getting 60% of the vote to McCain's 24% in Ron Paul territory.
But the story doesn't end there. As if McCain's sole 'win' of the day wasn't sad enough, it appears something is rotten in the State of Washington.
[McCain] was losing narrowly in Washington state and then pulled ahead by a narrow margin (less than two points) toward the end. But then with 87% of the returns counted, the Washington state GOP, which runs the caucuses stopped releasing results. That left us and a lot of other news organizations in a bit of a quandary last night since it looked like McCain was going to pull it off. But as late as 1:30 AM on the east coast promised new results kept failing to materialize.Washington GOP officials say final results will be available Monday. I think Rev Huckabee's supporters might be concerned by these events.
Then over night the Washington state GOP put out a press release announcing McCain the winner based on the 87% returns.
The GOP has real problems.
