BOISE, Idaho, March 6 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney was declared the runaway winner of the Idaho Caucuses Tuesday, garnering more than 60 percent of the vote.

With three-quarters of the ballots counted, Romney, a former governor or Massachusetts, had 64 percent of the votes and led U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who was second with 11 percent, CNN said.

Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania had 9 percent and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia had 3 percent.

There were 32 delegates to the GOP presidential nominating convention at stake in the caucus, which was open to registered Republicans.
