The former Massachusetts governor won six of the first eight delegates to be selected. Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and California Rep. Duncan Hunter won one apiece, meaning no other candidate could beat Romney. Caucuses were still being held to decide all 12 delegates at stake.
The remaining 2 delegates will be picked at the state’s Convention in the spring. The state’s party chairman is okay with all this:
Tom Sansonetti, the county convention organizer, maintained Saturday that moving the state’s caucuses ahead was the right thing to do.
“The ultimate goal is not how many times we appear on Katie Couric,” Sansonetti said. “The ultimate goal was to have attention paid to rank-and-file Republicans by national candidates.”
In addition, he said more Wyoming Republicans have become involved in the process.
Well, at least we know who actually watches Couric pretend to be a journalist.
The other bright spot, since I’m feeling all optimistic today, is that Romney can claim a win somewhere!
