Mitt’s First Defeat: West Virginia

After a strong showing on the first ballot, Mitt Romney goes down to Mike Huckabee in West Virginia.

UPDATE: Willard's camp is whinging:

"Governor Romney had enough respect for the Republican voters of West Virginia to make an appeal to them about the future of the party based on issues. This is why he led on today's first ballot. Sadly, Senator McCain cut a Washington backroom deal… with the tax-and-spend candidate [Huckabee] he thought could best stop Governor Romney's campaign of conservative change."
