GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney won the close-watched Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll on Saturday.
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, took 38% of the vote in the poll. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum received 31%, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was at 15% and Texas Rep. Ron Paul stood at 12%.
When asked about their preference for vice president, 34% of the attendees at the conservative conference chose Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
Romney’s win took some of the sting out of a bad week for the former governor, who saw the momentum he had gained with back-to-back wins in Florida and Nevada slowed by going 0-for-3 on Tuesday in contests in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri.
