Romney takes Ada with 52%, wraps up win even with 10 counties still caucusing…

Mitt Romney has taken Ada County with 52 percent, to 23 percent for Rick Santorum, 22 percent for Ron Paul and 4 percent for Newt Gingrich. With 34 of the 44 counties reporting, that means Romney now has enough to wrap up the win in Idaho and secure all 32 of Idaho's delegates to the national GOP nominating convention. Ron Paul won Boundary, Camas and Latah counties, and Rick Santorum took Lewis County, but even if Paul or Santorum does well in the remaining 10 counties, neither can surmount Romney's lead. They're still caucusing in Kootenai, Benewah, Bonner, Canyon, Clearwater, Gem, Idaho, Shoshone, Owyhee and Nez Perce counties.
