Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, got nearly 60 percent of the vote a few hours after telling conservatives in Washington, "I majored in miracles, and I still believe in them." He won all 36 delegates at stake.
Huckabee also edged ahead of McCain in caucuses in Washington, and in Louisiana's primary, where he was close to gaining 50 percent of the vote, the requirement for pocketing 20 delegates.
For all his brave talk, Huckabee was hopelessly behind in the delegate race. McCain had 719, compared with 234 for Huckabee and 14 for Texas Rep. Ron Paul. It takes 1,191 to win the nomination at the national convention.

For the results direct from Washington GOP please click here. Only 87% reporting so far. I gave a call to Wash GOP and was told by communications director that official results will be available Monday. That leaves another one thousand precincts that have not yet reported.
If you click here and page down to Washington you can see there's more meat left on the bone in Washington.
