Mitt Romney stepped out to an early lead over his Republican presidential rivals Saturday night in Washington state caucuses, a prelude to contests in 10 states on Tuesday in all regions of the country.
Returns from caucuses in 7 percent of the state's precincts showed the former Massachusetts governor with 31 percent of the votes, while Ron Paul had 27 percent and Rick Santorum had 24 percent. Newt Gingrich trailed with 14 percent.
There were 40 delegates at stake, and a likelihood that two or perhaps more of the contenders for the nomination to oppose President Barack Obama would add to their totals.
