Mitt Romney wins Wyoming

Unbeknownst to many, the Wyoming Republican primary was today. The state moved up its election day up in an effort to make it more relevant in the primary process. Unfortunately for them, it backfired: the RNC cut Wyoming's number's of delegates to the Republican Convention in half from 28 to 14. By contrast, Iowa had 37 delegates. With so few positions up for grabs, the primary was largely ignored by candidates (only a few campaigned there) and the mainstream media.

Mitt Romney won the state with eight delegates. Fred Thompson received 2; Duncan Hunter got 1. Two more are still up for grabs today, and the final two will be selected at a Wyoming GOP convention in May.

This bring Romney's total delegates to 20. Mike Huckabee, who won Iowa, has 17.
