The first batch of numbers have been reported by the state Republican party and while Sen. John McCain and former Gov. Mike Huckabee are virtually tied, Ron Paul is just a bit behind.

With just 16 percent of the caucus numbers reported by the party, McCain has 26.6 percent of the total and Huckabee has 25.9 percent. Paul is third with 21.2 percent.

Mitt Romney, who suspended his campaign this week, still has 16.7 percent.
