Ron Paul activists pretty much took over the room at the Forge Inn in Woodbridge NJ Sat. for the NJ Conservative Presidential Straw Poll.
Over 200 attended with 126 votes garnered for Paul. Thompson was a distant second, Mitt Romney tallyed 22 and Gov. Huckabee pulled in 15 votes – had the amount of supporters that showed up at the Meetup group last Wed., Huckabee would’ve pulled in a much healthier second place finish. There were not many “undecided” voters as everyone in attendance that I noticed had a stickier or button for their choice candidate.
Peter Kane was the surrogate speaker for Gov. Huckabee and as usual did a fabulous job representing the former Governor.
Huckabee supporters were optimistic however – their candidate pulled in ahead of New Jersey favorite – Rudy Giuliani.
