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%.
