Mitt Romney has won the Washington state caucuses.
It's his fourth win in a row. In a statement he said Washington voters, “…want a conservative businessman who understands the private sector and knows how to get the federal government out of the way so that the economy can once again grow vigorously.”
According to the Associated Press, with more than 60 percent of the precinct votes counted by Saturday night, Romney had 36 percent of the vote, followed by Rick Santorum, who had 25 percent. Ron Paul was close behind with 24 percent of the vote and Newt Gingrich had 11 percent.
