Mike Huckabee Wins Iowa

Posted by Mike on January 3, 2008

Mike Huckabee has won the Iowa caucuses, easily defeating second place finisher Mitt Romney. Right now, at 9:30pm eastern time, third place is still up in the air. At this point, the fight for third is among Fred Thompson, John McCain, and the sometimes entertaining but always nutty Ron Paul.

As a Thompson supporter, I won’t know if I’ll be happy with the results until much later in the night. If Thompson can hang on to third place, the Senator will have a plausible path to the nomination thanks to Huckabee.  I’ll explain my thoughts on this later. Right now, I’ll be watching, hoping, and praying that Thompson can hold off McCain and Paul. I’ll check in later tonight, or maybe tomorrow.
