Romney Wins Wyoming

Mitt Romney has won the Wyoming caucuses with 39 percent of the vote. Rick Santorum finished second, with 32 percent, followed by Ron Paul (21 percent), and Newt Gingrich (8 percent). However, Wyoming (like Iowa, Maine, and Minnesota) doesn’t bind its delegates, meaning that the state’s delegates (who haven’t been chosen yet) could theoretically choose to vote however they like at the convention, regardless of whether their convention votes mirror the caucus results or not. 

The Romney campaign is pointing to Wyoming as a sign of growing momentum for Romney, noting that he won the last four states (Maine, Arizona, Michigan, and Wyoming) that have voted.
