Mitt Romney Wins Wyoming Caucuses

CHEYENNE, Wyo. ( TheStreet) -- Mitt Romney won Wyoming's caucuses Saturday.

The front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination won at least six of Wyoming's 12 delegates, the Associated Press reported, while former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won three and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas won one.

Uncommitted won one delegate, while a final delegate remained to be allocated, the AP reported.

The victory -- along with wins of nine delegates each in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands -- helped Romney partially counter Santorum's overwhelming win in the Kansas caucuses, also Saturday.

In the wake of the Kansas and Wyoming contests, Romney had 453 delegates, according to the AP's tally, while Santorum had 217, Gingrich 107 and Paul 47.

The focus of the race now shifts to Alabama and Mississippi, which hold primaries on Tuesday, March 13. Ninety delegates are up for grabs in those two states, and the AP noted that polls point to close races in both states.
