Nevada Caucus: Clinton and Romney hit the jackpot, baby
Here's the deal.
Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney struck gold in the silver state. Clinton won the Democratic caucus in Nevada, and Romney won the Republican caucus.
On the Democratic side, Clinton won 51% of the vote. She also won support from the majority of women and Latinos. Barack Obama came in second with a 45% showing, and John Edwards lost his shirt with just 4% of the vote. Less than 1% of caucus goers' gambled on Dennis Kucinich.
Romney's campaign efforts won him a big payout: 51% of the vote. Ron Paul came in second (14%), followed by John McCain (13%), Mike Huckabee (8%), Fred Thompson (9%) and Rudy Giuliani (4%) and Duncan Hunter (less than 1%). Hunter folded and dropped out of the race.
Rivals hope to beat Clinton and Romney in later state primaries; afterall, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? Clinton and Romney say don't bet on it.
