Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won as expected in an Iowa Republican Party Straw Poll Saturday claiming nearly twice as many votes as his nearest rival.

Romney had been expected to win because he spent millions of dollars and months of effort on an event that was skipped by two of his major rivals.

Romney scored 4,516 votes, or 31 percent, to outpace former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 2,587 votes.

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback was third with 2,192 votes.

Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo was fourth with 1,961 votes.

Among other candidates, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received 183 votes and Senator John McCain of Arizona got 101.
