Washington Republican Caucus Still Not Called?

By  | 

Could it be because Ron Paul was going to pull ahead? He was running a very close third to Huck and McCain.

TPM weighs in on how weird this is…

As you know, John McCain lost two of the three contests yesterday. He was losing narrowly in Washington state and then pulled ahead by a narrow margin (less than two points) toward the end. But then with 87% of the returns counted, the Washington state GOP, which runs the caucuses stopped releasing results. That left us and a lot of other news organizations in a bit of a quandary last night since it looked like McCain was going to pull it off. But as late as 1:30 AM on the east coast promised new results kept failing to materialize.

Then we have Huckabee on Meet The Press this morning…

I’ll be curious to see how this plays out. It’s very weird that they wouldn’t release the results.

What’s going on?

So they stopped counting?

The Washington State GOP, with 87.2 percent reporting, discontinued the counting process. We are looking into the matter. We are committed to making certain EVERY vote is counted. We will keep you posted.

That’s from the Huckabee campaign.

Again, what the hell is going on?
