Romney wins 34 of state's 40 delegates at convention

TACOMA -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has secured Washington state's 10 at-large delegates.
The sweep on Saturday means Romney won the support of 34 of the 40 delegates up for grabs at this week's state convention. Washington has three other automatic delegates, including the state party chairman.
Supporters of Texas congressman Ron Paul won five delegates on Friday and helped a delegate for Rick Santorum move to the national convention.
Romney's delegates include U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and former gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi. It also includes state Sen. Pam Roach, who was once banished from the Senate GOP caucus because of her conduct. She was allowed back in earlier this year when Senate Republicans led a revolt on the state budget.
Roach got the least number of votes of the chosen delegates.
