McCain way ahead in Texas, too

Early counting in Texas has John McCain way ahead of the field there, as he has been in other contests tonight.

In Texas, were only about 3,000 votes have been counted, he has 60 percent, to Mike Huckabee's 31 percent.

In Ohio, McCain has 66 percent to Huckabee's 23 percent.

In Vermont, it's McCain 70 percent, Huckabee 16 percent.

And what about Ron Paul? He's in single digits in all three contests: 6 percent in Vermont, 5 percent in Ohio and 3 percent in Texas.
