While rightfully all of the focus was on the Democratic Race yesterday, Republicans voted as well. The nominee, John McCain picked up 73.99% of the vote. Also on the ballot were Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul and Alan Keyes.
Remember Keyes? He ran for President in 1996 and he ran again in 2008, though no one noticed. He even got invited to one debate in Iowa. Keyes picked up just over 13,000 votes in the primary last night, good for 2 delegates to the convention
. North Carolina is complete proportional representation.
Thus, Keyes now has 2 delegates at the convention, which is more than the 1 more than the front runner of most of 2007, Rudy Giuliani, got this whole race, where he spent over 50 million.
Props to Keyes and Slops to Rudy!
