Romney wins Wyoming

The state of Wyoming held a set of Republican county conventions today to select delegates to the National Convention. Romney turned out to be the big winner in Wyoming with a total of eight convention delegates pledged to him. Fred Thompson came in second with three, and Duncan Hunter came in third with one.

I think we've learned some lessons here. First, we now know that, yes, moving your state's primary up to the very start of primary season does make it more likely for your state to be noticed. We've also learned that Romney can win in sparsely populated plains states that border Utah. Finally, we've learned that Duncan Hunter now has roughly 0.1% of the support he'll need to win the Republican nomination. Will this lead to "Duncan-mentum" in next week's New Hampshire primary?
