Romney notches fifth straight win with Washington state GOP caucuses

Published March 04, 2012

Mitt Romney heads into Super Tuesday with a five-state winning streak under his belt, after cruising to victory in the Washington state caucuses Saturday night.

The contest was a blip when compared against the 10-state battle approaching this Tuesday, when 419 delegates are up for grabs. The candidates for days have been campaigning hard in Super Tuesday states like Ohio in hopes of using the high-stakes electoral event to chart a course to the nomination.

Still, the Washington race offered the last chance for momentum ahead of that showdown. With the former Massachusetts governor carrying the state by a double-digit margin, the performance helps him reassert frontrunner status following a string of defeats to Rick Santorum last month.

Romney said he was "heartened" by Saturday's results.

"The voters of Washington have sent a signal that they do not want a Washington insider in the White House," Romney said in a statement. "They want a conservative businessman who understands the private sector and knows how to get the federal government out of the way so that the economy can once again grow vigorously."

With 100 percent of precincts reporting in Washington, Romney was the clear winner with 38 percent. 

Ron Paul, with 25 percent, edged out Rick Santorum, who had 24 percent, in the tight battle for second place. Newt Gingrich was a distant fourth with 11 percent.
