Huckabee Wins Tulsa County Republicans

Tulsa County's conservative Republicans gave Mike Huckabee a slight edge in Tulsa County, beating state winner John McCain.

Unofficial results show Huckabee with 34 percent of the Tulsa County Republican vote, edging McCain with 33 percent. The difference was less than one thousand votes.

Mitt Romney was third with 27 percent of the Tulsa County vote.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see a major split among Tulsa County Republicans. Huckabee, candidate of the religious right, carried the day—but just barely.

And despite the zeal of his Tulsa supporters who plastered Tulsa with signs, Ron Paul managed only 3 percent of the Tulsa County Republican vote, less than 2,500 votes.

Finally, anti-immigrant crusader Tom Tancredo managed to pull in 40 votes in Tulsa County, despite the fact that he's officially withdrawn from the campaign.

Forty votes—hey, it's a start. Better keep an eye out for the Tancredo bandwagon in 2012.
