Romney gets four delegates, Paul one

Mar 7, 2012 - By Ben Neary, The Associated Press

CHEYENNE (AP) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picked up four delegates in the first round of Wyoming's Republican presidential caucuses -- a county-run affair that runs through this week.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul won the fifth delegate up for grabs on Tuesday. Seven more delegates to the Republican National Convention will be chosen at county caucuses on Wednesday and on Saturday.

Romney won 56 percent of Tuesday's caucus vote in six counties. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won 30 percent, Paul 2 percent and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich 0 percent.
