Huckabee Wins West Virginia

By on 2.5.08 | 2:07PM

Mike Huckabee won the West Virginia State Presidential Convention today -- with an assist by the Ron Paul faction on the second ballot. The point, I guess, was to register antipathy to Romney by denying him delegates... and giving them to the big-government nanny-statist social conservative. Granted, Huckabee is probably the second-least hawkish candidate. But remind me again: Was Paul's candidacy supposed to have something to do with libertarianism?

This gives Huckabee all 18 of West Virginia's delegates.
