Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and Baptist preacher, easily won the Kansas caucuses Saturday, securing 36 delegates. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Huckabee had 60 percent of the vote, while Sen. John McCain had 24, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 11 percent, according to CNN.

Though based on delegate counts McCain seems all but guaranteed to take the Republican nomination, Huckabee vowed to soldier on. He told supporters: "I know the pundits, and I know what they say: 'Well, the math doesn't work out.' Folks, I didn't major in math, I majored in miracles. I still believe in those, too."
