Bloomington, MN (WDAY TV) -- The results of a GOP presidential straw poll in Minnesota are in. The winner is Herman Cain, with 52 percent of the votes. Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann is second with 12 percent. And Mitt Romney is third with 11. Republican leaders from across the Midwest cast ballots in Bloomington. They are trying to build on momentum in the battleground state, spread candidate's messages, and get their voices heard when primaries are held next year. Tony Sutton of the Minnesota GOP says, “Takes the temperature of the top republican party officials in Minnesota as where they think the republication nomination is headed. In advance of what is going to be an important precinct caucus." No candidate came. But Ron Paul had a booth, and Herman Cain spoke to the conference via Skype.
