Romney Wins, Huck Lags, But Fred Falls

Tonight's Michigan primary results show a major gap between that state's Republican voters and the preferences of Oklahoma Republicans.

Mitt Romney won the Michigan vote, followed by Sen. John McCain. The two candidates expected to do well in Oklahoma, Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson, were also-rans in Michigan.

Romney won 39 percent of the votes, while McCain garnered 30 percent. Huckabee, winner of the recent Iowa primary, came in third with 16 percent of the vote.

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson received only 4 percent of the vote, another dismal finish for the Law & Order actor. Although he beat the "uncommitted" vote, Thompson was bested by GOP contrarian Ron Paul, who came in with 6 percent of the vote.
