NBC News reports that Mike Huckabee wins the early-morning West Virginia caucuses, 52-47 over Mitt Romney in the second round of voting (McCain lost out after the first round). Huckabee doesn't like to call himself the spoiler, but I think it's pretty clear that he just cost West Virginia for Romney.

Of course, if Huckabee takes a little here and Romney a little there, maybe this race gets extended. Not gonna happen, but a guy can dream...

UPDATE: Looks like there was some wheeling and dealing to deny Romney the victory. This might have been coordinated, but also activists are generally just more knowledgeable about politics, and know that stopping Romney would help McCain.
