Huckabee not ready to concede Washington state
SEATTLE, Wash. - Republican Mike Huckabee says he's not ready to concede Washington state, even though the state Republican Party has declared Arizona Sen. John McCain the winner of Saturday's caucuses.
On NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning, the former Arkansas governor said his campaign is looking into some legal issues, without going into specifics.
McCain won 26 percent of delegates, Huckabee won 24 percent, Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished with 21 percent, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has dropped out of the race, got 17 percent.
On the Democratic side, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama beat New York Sen. Hillary Clinton 2-to-1.
