Mitt Romney wins Virginia primary

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Mitt Romney has easily won a poor turnout election in Virginia.

Old Dominion Republicans could choose only between the former Massachusetts governor and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, whose libertarian streak has earned him a dedicated but small following. Former Sen. Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich both failed to make Virginia's ballot.

Forty-six of the state's 49 delegates were at stake in a race that generated little energy among the state's Republicans.
