West Virginia for Huckabee!

West Virginia for HuckabeeWest Virginia was the first of 21 states to announce it’s choice for the Republican presidential nominee tonight. Can you guess who the winner was? Amazingly, Mike Huckabee took 1st place with 52% of the vote! Romney took 2nd with 47% while McCain, the national leader, took an extremely distant 3rd at 1%. With the winner-take-all system, Huckabee has gained West Virginia’s 18 delegates. The May 13 primary will decide the remaining 30 delegates.

Thousands of people across the nation are still voting. With all kinds of adverse weather conditions, it is great to read about the positive turnout all across the nation as well as seeing it here at Headquarters. The Staff Center here is being used as a voting station and as I write, downstairs there is a continuous flow of Illinois citizens coming to vote.

Huckabee still has a long way to go tonight. Go, Mike, Go!

    That is wonderful news James! Praise the Lord.

    I really can’t believe that – 1%? Wow. Huckabee has more support here than I thought.

    You can count on us getting out to vote for Mike May 13th!

    Ye–haaa!

    While the Lord can use it for good in the end, the story behind the story is a sad one. Evidently the votes were coming to about 20% McCain, 35% Huckabee and 50% Romney when McCain advised his supporting delegates to throw thir support to Huckabee–which explains the eventual 1% McCain, 47% Romney, 52% Huckabee turnout. Hmm.

    After “Super Tuesday” Romney officially stepped out of the race, knowing that unity on the part of the Republicans would be necessary long-term. Let’s pray that the Lord would continue to use this for good in the end and that a principled leader if at all possible would be raised up for our country.

    After all the work you all have done, we were quite happy to see Huckabee take WV. It doesn’t look like he will be taking VA on Tuesday though. However, he will be speaking at the CPAC in DC tomorrow where some think it will be preparations for a 2012 campaign.

    Win or loose, we still “Like Mike”, and the many conservative ideas he stands for.
