Huckabee Wins in Kansas, Louisiana; McCain Takes Washington State

Voters in Louisiana and Kansas held primary contests on Saturday. By a margin of 60%-24%, Mike Huckabee won in the Kansas caucuses and won in Louisiana by a margin of 43%-42% for Senator McCain. In Washington state, McCain defeated Huckabee 26%-24% with Ron Paul coming in at 21%.

Despite Huckabee's wins in Kansas, Louisiana and other more conservative states, Senator McCain has a sizable lead over him in delegates. Estimates stand that McCain has about 723 delegates compared to Huckabee's 217.

The 'Potomac Primaries' take place tomorrow, when Virginia, Maryland and the District will all hold their presidential contests.
