2/5/08 — The Associated
Press declared John McCain the winner of the Republican primaries in New Jersey, Illinois, and Connecticut just after 8 p.m.

New Jersey is winner take all for
Republicans, giving McCain 52 delegates. Connecticut is also winner take all on the Republican side, giving McCain another 27 pledged delegates.

Illinois hands out delegates proportionally, so the number of delegates resulting from McCain’s victory there has yet to be determined.
