Wyoming Republican Caucus Today

UPDATE: Mitt Romney has won the Wyoming Caucus, capturing 8 of the 12 delegates up for grabs. Now that a CFR insider has safely won, it appears that the corporate media has suddenly discovered that Wyoming is a state in the union and that they had a caucus Saturday. It is OK to report on the story now. The caucus was far from open. Only party officials could vote, hence outsider candidates- whether Huckabee or Paul, tended to do poorly.

One of the most under-reported stories of the GOP race is that there is another state selecting delegates before New Hampshire. That's Wyoming, who will select delegates on the Republican side January 5th, before 3PM. The state has a couple more delegates than New Hampshire does, so it is hard to figure why the media has ignored it so much, except that it is easier for them to do what they always do rather than go to a distant state in the heartland to find, well, news!

I believe this station will carry the story, even if it is blacked out elsewhere!

You make a very good point Mark. Why doesn't the media cover this?

Wow, you and I covered two of the same stories today. Twins seperated at birth.

The exclusion of Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter from the debates is wrong.

Great minds think alike I guess!

After a total media blackout in the lead up, it's amazing how suddenly relevant & newsworthy an obscure midwestern state caucus can become when an establishment favorite wins it...... and the only one to visit or compete in it, no less!
