Romney tops Wyoming caucuses
Mitt Romney won Wyoming’s Republican presidential precinct caucuses Wednesday, a non-binding straw poll that gives him a third victory in two days.
The caucuses had been running from Feb. 9 through this week, and with voting finally closed Mr. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, had 39 percent of the 2108 votes cast. That topped former Sen. Rick Santorum’s 32 percent, Rep. Ron Paul’s 21 percent and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s 8 percent.
Delegates selected at the caucuses are not bound to vote for the winners in subsequent county and state conventions, so the actual breakdown of delegates each candidate will win toward the nomination in Tampa in August won’t be known until later.
The victory continues a winning streak for Mr. Romney, who on Tuesday won primaries in Arizona and Michigan. But it also confirms Mr. Santorum’s place as his chief rival headed into next week’s Super Tuesday.
