Romney wins four Wyoming delegates

Mar 7, 2012

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picked up four delegates in the first round of Wyoming's Republican
presidential caucuses. A fifth delegate from Wyoming went to Ron Paul.

Romney edged former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum by two votes to pick up his first Wyoming delegate in Laramie County, the state's most populous.

Big Horn, Natrona and Washakie counties also went for Romney. Republicans in Weston County near the Black Hills in the state's northeastern corner chose the delegate for Paul.

Yesterday's voting was the start of a long state GOP process that will choose 29 delegates by the time it's over in April.
