Mitt Romney picked up victories in three contests today, Wyoming, Guam, and Northern Mariana. The Associated Press reports:

Mitt Romney has won the Republican presidential delegate vote at Wyoming's county conventions. That adds to his advantage in the party's race for the nomination. ...

In Wyoming, Romney won six delegates. Santorum gained three and Ron Paul one. Another remains uncommitted, and one more is still to be decided.

 

Earlier Saturday, Romney further padded his delegate lead by winning all nine delegates on the island of Guam and nine delegates in the Northern Mariana Islands.

Earlier today, rival Rick Santorum won the Kansas contest. Politico reports:

Rick Santorum handily won the Kansas GOP caucuses in another test of his strength with the party’s conservative voters.

The former Pennsylvania senator was the only candidate to seriously campaign in Kansas as he tries to narrow the GOP nominating contest to a head-to-head matchup between himself and Mitt Romney.

Santorum will likely receive the lion’s share of Kansas’ 40 delegates when all the caucus votes are tallied, with Romney placing second.
