Voters had the choice of several confirmed and unconfirmed 2012 Republican presidential candidates at the Montgomery County GOP's tent in Rockville Sunday.

Montgomery County may not be Iowa, but at Rockville’s Hometown Holidays celebration Sunday, the GOP tent was giving voters a chance to cast their 2012 presidential straw vote.

Among the Republicans who stopped by was Jim Herz; he cast his symbolic vote for Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

"I think he's really serious about getting our fiscal problems under control, hes done a great job in Minnesota," says Herz.

Dave Asgorian, who considers himself an independent, had a different take.

"I think the election is the Republicans to lose and I think Mitt Romney is an exceptionally strong candidate," he says.

If you'd like to know which presidential candidate won Montgomery County over the Memorial Day weekend, the county's GOP party says it will publish the results on their website late today or early Tuesday.
