- Huckabee wins Georgia, third-largest Super Tuesday prize
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) has surprised pundits by winning four states on Super Tuesday, picking up three wins in the South, where he was expected to run strongly, and capturing West Virginia.
Huckabee was declared the winner in Georgia shortly before 11 pm EST, grabbing the third biggest Republican prize of Super Tuesday. The Peach State trails only California and New York in number of delegates awarded. Huckabee’s victory will give him at least 30 of the state’s at-large delegates as well as the bulk of 39 delegates awarded on the basis of performance in each of its 13 congressional districts.
Huckabee also won in Alabama, Arkansas, and West Virginia, outpacing one-time frontrunner Mitt Romney (R), and he was leading in Missouri and Tennessee.
