Nevada 2012: The Capital Checks In for Newt, Romney
With 7.5% of the precincts counted, Newt Gingrich has leaped over Ron Paul for second place while Mitt Romney has increased his lead to 39%. Gingrich now has 25% to Paul's 22%. Rick Santorum appears to have plateaued at 13%. Reno, Henderson and Las Vegas numbers are still outstanding and can easily reposition the field, though Romney is expected to fare well in the state's major population centers.
