The Nevada Caucus Results

By on 2.6.12 | 2:52PM

Since Las Vegas rivals New York as the city that never sleeps, the Nevada GOP finally announced Saturday's full Republican caucus results earlier today:

Mitt Romney 16,486 50.1%
Newt Gingrich 6,956 21.1%
Ron Paul 6,175 18.8%
Rick Santorum 3,277 10%

It's noteworthy that Mitt Romney cobbled together a bare majority, though he was down slightly from his 2008 percentage. Ron Paul finished behind Newt Gingrich despite improving his vote percentage by a few points from four years ago. But the results represent Paul's smallest growth in vote totals from the last campaign by far.

UPDATE: A former Nevada GOP county official makes some relevant points in the comments thread.
