18 February 2008 update: The delegate breakdown appears to be Huckabee - 51, McCain - 12, Romney - 6 but we do not have the vote by CD. Huckabee won CDs 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 13. McCain won CDs 1, 5, and 12. Romney won CDs 4 and 6. We do not have the official vote by CD. The numbers below show our estimated vote by CD.

Here's how we estimate the delegate count (based on uncertified returns from an official source as of 13 February 2008 2:07:38 PM EST):

Since we have the vote by county and not be CD, we have estimated the vote by CD from the vote by County by apportioning the vote by county into each CD. Hence this is a very rough estimate.

  1. The candidate receiving the most votes in each CD is awarded 3 delegates.
  2. The candidate receiving the most votes statewide is awarded 33 delegates.
