McCain wins in New Jersey
by UPI

TRENTON, N.J. - U.S. Sen. John McCain won an easy 2-1 victory over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in New Jersey's Republican presidential primary Tuesday.

With 94 percent of the vote in, McCain had 56 percent to 28 percent for Romney, 8 percent for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and 5 percent for Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, New Jersey Network said.

The victory in a winner-take-all primary gives McCain 52 delegates.

For most of last year, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani had such a formidable lead in New Jersey polls that other Republicans did not bother to campaign. But McCain had already pulled even before Giuliani dropped out after last week's Florida primary and threw his support behind the Arizona senator.

The total vote in the Republican primary in New Jersey was far lower than on the Democratic side. New Jersey allows voters who have not declared a party to do so on primary day, and observers said that far more undeclared voters came out for the Democrats.
