Puerto Rico votes as GOP contenders look down the road

San Juan, Puerto Rico (CNN) - Mitt Romney will win Sunday's Republican presidential primary in Puerto Rico, CNN projects, based on vote results obtained from local party and election officials.

At 7:35 p.m. ET, with about 20% of total ballots accounted for, the former Massachusetts governor had a substantial lead with more than 22,000 votes - or 83% of the vote.

    Looks like old man Bush (the 1st).

    The only thing colorful about Mitt is his offshore money.

    Our economy suffered under the Bush/republican near depression, and Mittens wants to take us back there.

    Mittens has outspent his opponents 7 to one. He wasted $45 million in negative ads, and still he has trouble getting over 30% of the republican vote.

    See ya at the convention Pope Ricky, Newtster, and Rmoney/Paul. Paul's campaign is on record stating they would trade their delegates to Rmoney if Rand is on the ticket. Just like the pampered repubs. They believe they can do anything and circumvent the laws and that the average American can do nothing to stop them.

    @GI JOE:
    I'm laughing because I thought the exact same thing. In fact, I wondered why CNN was using such an old picture!
