Romney gains half of Wyoming delegates

(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked up 13 of the 26 delegates at stake in Wyoming, based on new results from the state’s county conventions that concluded Saturday.

While the former Massachusetts governor won the Wyoming caucuses on February 29, delegates were not allocated until this weekend.

Rick Santorum, who placed second in last month's contest, gained seven delegates, while Ron Paul won four and Newt Gingrich earned one.

Combined with Romney’s other delegate hauls on Saturday in Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands, CNN’s delegate estimate now shows that Romney leads the GOP pack with 458 delegates.

Meanwhile, Santorum has 203, Gingrich has 118 and Paul has 66.

The next round of contests take place Tuesday, when voters in Alabama, Mississippi, Hawaii and American Samoa head to the polls.

    To all the posters referring to Willard as a moderate.I want to know what drugs are you taking.Willard is a liberal impersonating a severly conservative.Willard will say anything and you will see the south will unequivocally reject Milton.He is a pathological lier.

    He sure is trying to use the Obama delegate strategy to become the GOP candidate.

    Mitt will win in November, the Mormon mafia has the super-pack cash.

    At this point, there is NO way of stopping Romney. Santorum can only hope Romney doden't reach the max and the convention will favor him. Thats not gonna happen because delegates do the voting there.

    LOL. This is not even almost right. Romney has 8*, Santorum has 2, Paul has 1, there is one uncommitted. One of Romneys is being contested as they took a second vote in Park later in the convention and Santorum won. and one contested (Romney won first vote). 12 more will be chosen at the State convention in April.

    Who writes this stuff? Its just so wrong! CNN should revisit its vetting of reporters.

    Karl Rove picked Mittens to be the GOP nominee for the same reason he picked GW Bush and Sarah Palin: Mittens has proven he is willing to do anything to get elected and will be a willing puppet if ever in the White House.

    After all, as Grover Norquist said recently at CPAC to all those who will have to hold their noses to vote for Mittens, "Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared."

    Pathetic, simply pathetic.

    These repubs are something special, the single most pressing thing for them since Obama took office, was Obama care. I remembered all manner of evil things that was said of this president because the healthcare. I am just in Wang, seeing these same Republicans who said America wont exist because of this policy, is voting for the architech and advocate of Obama care. This brings me to the beleif this was all politics after all. I should have known because Republicans were always the ones for the mandate and every one pay their own share, and dens were for the government single payer, no wonder they love mitten so much.

    It would be nice to open up one of the Archie comics, and find that Mitt, has returned to his roots. Go Away.

    Wow. For all the talk of Rmoney's inevitability and "support" from the elites running the party, he doesn't even have one third of the delegates needed to win. Looks like Rove's Plan to Elect the Neocon Robot needs to turn up the ramming him down voter's throats program.
