CRA picks Romney
The conservative California Republican Assembly has a presidential favorite, and it's former Massassachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
On a second ballot vote Sunday at their Sacramento state convention, some 240 CRA delegates voted by a two-thirds margin to endorse Romney over former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson.
On the first ballot, candidates San Diego County Rep. Duncan Hunter and Texas congressman Ron Paul failed to meet the 10 percent support threshhold to reach the second ballot, said CRA president Mike Spence.
But Spence said that was far better than former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who mustered a grand total of six votes.
