CNN has called Washington state's Republican primary for John McCain.

Though Washington's Democratic primary is nonbinding, the winner-take-all GOP race will give the Arizona senator 19 more delegates.

With 38 percent of the precincts now counted, McCain has 48 percent of the vote, to Huckabee's 21 percent. Interestingly, Mitt Romney, who dropped out after Super Tuesday, is also polling at 21 percent.
