GOP Caucus In Washington Wraps Up

SPOKANE, Wash. -

Washington state's Republican presidential caucuses have mostly wrapped up, after thousands of Republicans crowded schools, town halls and homes across the state.

Saturday's caucuses were the first meaningful party contests in recent memory. Because of the large attendance to precincts across the state, some caucuses may run longer than the noon cut off time.

While the caucuses are a nonbinding contest, state Republicans say it could create momentum for the four candidates on their last stop before Super Tuesday, where voting takes place in 10 states.

Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul have all visited the state in recent weeks, some twice. Paul was the only one still in the state on Saturday, speaking to supporters before a caucus in Puyallup. There are about 6,700 precincts in Washington, and there were several reports of precincts being standing room only. Republicans have predicted up to 60,000 participants across the state.
