Press Release From The Washington State Republican Party

As of 10:52 PM the final results of the Washington State Republican Party 2012 Caucus were reported. 

WSRP Chairman Kirby Wilbur released the following statement after the final numbers were received:

"I am excited with the record turnout of Republican voters to the caucus. I predicted around 50,000 people would attend the caucus and we had 50,764 vote in the straw poll.

"Not only were these attendees excited to have a voice in the Republican nomination process, but they were sending a clear message that President Obama's lack of economic recovery and disregard of the impact that his extremely high gas prices has on the average Washington working family, or non-working family because of his failed economic policies, will not be tolerated."

Detailed results will be released on Monday. Below are the final votes.

Candidate Votes Percentage
Newt Gingrich 5,221 10.28%
Ron Paul 12,594 24.81%
Mitt Romney 19,111 37.65%
Rick Santorum 12,089 23.81%
Undecided/Other 1,749 3.44%

Previous Coverage:

KHQ.COM - Mitt Romney is adding to his lead in the race for convention delegates with his win in Washington state's Republican presidential caucuses.

Romney has won at least 12 delegates while Rick Santorum and Ron Paul have each won at least three. Twenty-two delegates were still left to be awarded.

In the overall race for delegates, Romney leads with 185, Santorum has 90, Paul has 23 and Newt Gingrich has 33. It takes 1,144 delegates to win the nomination.

Washington Republicans use a multi-step process to award delegates, and Saturday's caucuses were just the first step. The Associated Press projects the number of delegates each candidate would win if there are no changes in their support throughout the process, which culminates in the party's state convention at the end of May.
