According to this report, Ron Paul was the winner of a straw poll at this weekend’s Virginia Republican Advance.
The Texas congressman got 182 of the 479 ballots cast, or 38 percent. Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson finished second with 112 votes, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee third with 51.
Mitt Romney got 43 votes, Sen. John McCain got 23, California congressman Duncan Hunter got 19 and Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo finished with four votes.
The Paul supporters packed the gathering. So, I guess we can throw those votes out. But – where are the votes for Rudy Guiliani? Surely at least one person voted for him.
UPDATE: Rick Sincere reports slightly different numbers (Romney with 45, Guiliani with 43). I trust Rick’s 😉
