Huckabee wins all 18 W.Va. delegates
Mike Huckabee won the first contest declared on Super Tuesday, picking up all 18 national delegates awarded at West Virginia's state GOP convention. Huckabee bested Mitt Romney, who entered the Mountain State event with the largest bloc of pledged convention-goers. Both men and Ron Paul made in-person appeals to the more than 1,100 convention delegates attending Tuesday's convention.

Clinton, Obama, McCain, Romney Battle Coast-to-Coast
Voters in Georgia, where the first results are likely to emerge in today's 24-state presidential nominating process, may provide clues to the outcome of the Super Tuesday primaries. When polls close at 7 p.m. New York time, one sign will be whether Republican Mitt Romney, 60, is winning Georgia's evangelical Christian voters, a bloc he needs to continue his battle against Arizona Senator John McCain, 71.

Early votes go smoothly in most states
Scattered voting problems, including machine glitches and long lines, were reported early in some states in the biggest Super Tuesday ever held in America. But overall, voting appeared to go smoothly.
A record turnout was expected as an unprecedented 24 states held primaries and caucuses to narrow the field for the Democratic and Republican nominees for president.
