SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- Mitt Romney says it looked impossible a week ago to win in Michigan. But he has easily outdistanced his rivals.
John McCain finished second and Mike Huckabee wound up in third place.
The win is Romney's first presidential primary victory to boast about as he heads into this weekend's GOP contest in South Carolina.
Speaking to supporters near Detroit, Romney praised his backers for telling America "what they needed to hear" on issues like employment, health care and border security.
