For everyone on this forum that keeps saying only the delegates matter - that isn't true until you're at least halfway through the season. It's all about momentum, momentum, media coverage, and momentum. Because, in the long run, these are the things that lead to candidates being able to rake in the delegate motherload once they become the presumptive nominee. If we are more than halfway through and there truly will not be a presumptive nominee, then delegates matter. For example, 3 1/2 weeks ago when Santorum got his 3-state comeback - he did not win one single pledged delegate. He hasn't won any at all actually (EDIT - he got 14 from Michigan, my bad). But you can't argue that night didn't dramatically affect the campaign.

It would be fair to say that Washington won't receive enough media coverage to affect the race too much. Unless of course Santorum somehow wins, then we'll never hear the end of it

Would've liked to see some results from Spokane before a projection, but, okay.

King county has more votes left than what Spokane will have total.

They've talked to the GOP Chairman of the state that has said results that aren't officially reported yet -- all pointing to Romney growing his lead.

Everyone enjoy the fraud and vote rigging show? I did...I wish I had my volume remote to mute that son of a female dog King's mouth up...this is exactly why I don't get excited or even expect Paul to win...no Spokane numbers no Seattle numbers yet Romney wins...yeah right sure pal.
