Romney Wins Arizona, Picks Up 29 Delegates

Mitt Romney is the winner of the Arizona GOP presidential primary, handily besting second place finisher Rick Santorum. Romney picked up more than 47% of the votes, with 93% of the precincts reporting. Santorum was second was 26.5%. Arizona’s delegates are “winner-take-all”, so Romney secures all 29 of them from that state.

Some polls from last week showed a tight race between Romney and Santorum. However, a poor debate performance for Santorum on Wednesday in Arizona helped Romney secure the victory. Newt Gingrich claimed third place with 16.2% and Ron Paul was a distant fourth at 8.5%.
