Romney Wins Guam and Northern Marianas
Mitt Romney's delegate total went up by 18 overnight as he swept the caucuses in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (who says we're not an empire?) In contrast, none of the non-Romneys picked up a single delegate overnight. That will likely change today if Senator Santorum pulls off the expected victory in Kansas, as I wrote about yesterday. Even so, Romney will probably pick up enough delegates in Kansas (combined with the two islands) so that his overall lead on Santorum is larger on Sunday morning than it was on Friday morning. Of course, you probably won't hear this from the talking heads on the boob tube. Santorum's path to the nomination just got a little bit more difficult, not to mention Gingrich's or Paul's.
