Mike Huckabee is the big winner in today's Kansas Republican presidential caucuses.Huckabee picked up many conservatives' support despite rival candidate John McCain's status as the presumed GOP nominee.

Final results show Huckabee has 60 percent, compared to 24 percent for McCain. Texas Congressman Ron Paul has 11 percent.

Huckabee captured all 36 of the delegates to the Republican National Convention from Kansas. Another three delegates are party leaders who attend the convention no matter whom they support, and two of them have endorsed McCain.

The Kansas Republican Party chairman says the results are a -- quote -- "pretty significant signal to John McCain that he's got a lot of work to do to get significant factions of the Republican Party solidly behind him."
