Huckabee Wins W.Va- With McCain's Help

Maybe the theory that Huckabee and McCain have teamed up against Gov. Romney are true. In the West Virginia Convention, which apparently "the Huckleberry" has won, Gov. Romney won the first vote but not a majority. Then the McCain crowd jumped to Huckleberry in the second round UNDER INSTRUCTIONS to stop Gov. Romney.

So, Huckabee could not win without the McCain vote. Yes, this is politics, but it makes me distrust Huckabee and McCain that much more. From FoxNews:

But before Huckabee’s surprising turnaround at the convention, McCain delegates told FOX News they had been instructed by the campaign to throw their support to Huckabee.

McCain delegate John Vuolo said former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer approached him and other McCain supporters at the convention and told them he had spoken to McCain, and that the best thing to do was to support Huckabee in the hope that Huckabee could beat Romney in this winner-take-all state.

That account could add fuel to Romney’s claim that Huckabee is only undercutting his support base on Super Tuesday, and that a vote for Huckabee is a vote for McCain. That’s a claim Huckabee has fiercely denied.
