Romney wins big in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico …

CNN is calling the Puerto Rico primary for Mitt Romney. It appears that Romney will win an overwhelming victory over Santorum. With 11% of the vote counted, Romney had 82% of the vote.  20 delegates are up for grabs and because the Romney’s victory appears to be so convincing, Romney will claim all 20 delegates.

Mitt Romney will win Sunday’s Republican presidential primary in Puerto Rico, CNN projects, based on vote results obtained from local party and election officials.

At 6:50 p.m. ET, with about 11% of total ballots accounted for, the former Massachusetts governor had a substantial lead with more than 11,500 votes — or 82% of the votes.

Rick Santorum was a distant second, at 9% with more than 1,200 votes.
