Michigan and Arizona Primary results

This is an open thread to discuss the results of Michigan and Arizona primaries.

Update: Romney has been declared the winner in Arizona.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney coasted to victory in the Arizona primary Tuesday night and vied with rival Rick Santorum for supremacy in Michigan in a Republican presidential race as unsettled as the day it began.

Two other candidates, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, made little effort in either state, pointing instead to next week’s 10-state collection of Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses.

Michigan is currently neck and neck.

Update II: Here are the current results in Michigan.

    @ Calo:

    MI breaks down like this:

    Delegate Allocation: The Republican National Committee has said that Michigan’s total delegates to the national convention will be reduced by 50 percent due to the pre-March primary date. Of the 30 delegates at stake, two delegates will be awarded to the winner in each of the state’s 14 congressional districts and the remaining two delegates will go to the winner of the statewide vote, provided that candidate reaches a 15 percent threshold.

    Keep in mind that state level GOP officials have coronated Romney twice now without counting all of the votes.

    Now that the Federal Court has finally released the Interim 2012 maps, it is very likely that May 29th, 2012 will be the Date of the 2012 Texas Republican Primary Election

    When was it supposed to be?? April 3??

    Oh wait I just remembered something. Santorum’s campaign had a robo call urging Dems to vote for him -- I think that was in MI

    Guess it didn’t work

    heh
    with 88% of the votes in MI
    Romney wins with 41% and gets 5 delegates

    Santorun takes 2nd with 38% and gets…..5 delegates

    Paul and Gingrich get nada

    it’s like the electoral collage
    only with delegates

    Odd to call a race that close with 12% of the vote to be counted. The spread is only 3% and could easily change based on the uncounted percentage of votes.
