All the attention is going to Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich because they're the Republican candidates who made their party's final four. But there were plenty of other Republican candidates on the ballot today in Arizona and Michigan who are no longer actively campaigning -- and Texas Gov. Rick Perry reigns supreme among them.
In Michigan, with 72 percent of the vote counted, Perry was running sixth, just behind "Uncommitted" with 1,412 votes, or less than 1 percent of the total (winner Mitt Romney has more than 312,710 votes at this point). Trailing Perry by a hair was former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer with 1,404 votes, Michele Bachmann with 1,354, Jon Huntsman with 1,284 and Herman Cain with an uncanny 909 votes.
In Arizona, Perry was running fifth, behind Paul, the Texas congressman from Lake Jackson.
