Tuesday 6 March - Saturday 10 March 2012: The County Conventions meet over several days to choose 12 of 29 of Wyoming's delegates to the Republican National Convention. Approximately 980 (?) County precinct committeemen and women, who were elected in Wyoming's 17 August 2010 (biennial) primary election, are eligible to vote for the National Convention Delegates and Alternates at the County Conventions.

Meeting dates:
Tuesday 6 March: Big Horn, Laramie, Natrona, Teton, Washakie, Weston.
Wednesday 7 March: Niobrara.
Thursday 8 March: Albany.
Saturday 10 March: Campbell, Carbon, Converse, Crook, Fremont, Goshen, Hot Springs, Johnson, Lincoln, Park, Platte, Sheridan, Sublette, Sweetwater, Uinta.

  • Wyoming has 23 counties that are grouped into 12 Delegate-Districts. In each Delegate-District, except Laramie, counties are paired: one county selects a delegate while the other selects an alternate. The counties swap positions after each Presidential election.
    • Laramie, the county that cast the most votes of any county for the Republican candidate for Congress in the general election immediately preceding the National Convention selects both a Delegate and an Alternate. Laramie County cast the most votes of any county, 19,649 of out 131,661, for Congressman Cynthia Marie Lummis in the 2010 midterm election.
  • The arrangement for 2012 Delegate / Alternate Districts are:
    1. Natrona / Albany
    2. Carbon / Sweetwater
    3. Lincoln / Uinta
    4. Sublette Platte / Teton
    5. Park / Fremont
    6. Washakie / Hot Springs
    7. Big Horn / Sheridan Platte
    8. Johnson / Campbell
    9. Weston / Crook
    10. Niobrara / Converse
    11. Platte / Goshen
    12. Laramie selects both a delegate and an alternate.

There is no formal system applied in the County Convention to relate the presidential preference of the Convention participants to the choice of either the county's delegates to the State Convention or the delegate(s) to the National Convention the County Convention is helping to choose. The participants at each County Convention alone determine if presidential preference is to be a factor in such choices and, if so, how it is to be applied. All delegates are officially unbound.

  • State Party by-laws require that, before the County convention votes are taken, each would-be delegate or alternate must inform the convention of which presidential candidate, if any, they would cast their vote for at the national convention unless released from that pledge by the Presidential candidate.

Tuesday 6 March results
Big Horn: Romney (delegate).
Laramie: Romney-91, Santorum-89. Romney (delegate).
Laramie: Romney-79, Santorum-72. Romney (alternate).
Natrona: Romney (delegate).
Teton: undeclared (alternate).
Washakie: Romney (delegate).
Weston: Paul (delegate).

Wednesday 7 March results
Niobrara (22 participants): undeclared (delegate).

Thursday 8 March results
Albany: Santorum (alternate).

Saturday 10 March results
Sheridan: Romney-39, Paul-21. Romney (alternate).
Johnson: Romney-13, Undeclared-11. Romney (delegate).
Park County: Santorum-29, Romney-27. Santorum (delegate).
Sweetwater: Paul (alternate)
Platte County: Santorum-43, Undeclared-11. Santorum (delegate).

 

Thursday 12 April - Saturday 14 April 2012: The Wyoming State Republican Convention convenes in Cheyenne. The State Convention chooses the remaining 17 of Wyoming's delegates to the Republican National Convention.

Again, there is no formal system of allocating Wyoming's National Convention delegates to presidential contenders. The delegates to the State Convention alone determine if presidential preference is to be a factor and, if so, how it is to be applied to the choosing of the National Convention delegates.

  • 3 delegates are party leaders: the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Wyoming's Republican Party. These individuals will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.
  • State Party by-laws require that, before the State convention votes are taken, each would-be delegate or alternate (except the 3 Party Leader delegates) must inform the convention of which presidential candidate, if any, they would cast their vote for at the national convention unless released from that pledge by the Presidential candidate.

One word explains it -- Mormons.

Im sure there are multiple reasons, and someone will say it is all because of the Mormon thing. But as much as the mountain west states dont live government intrusion, they really hate government intrusion with a religious bent. Wyoming, Idaho, the Dakotas and Montana are all fairly libertarian, but I think they will accept government healthcare before they accept someone like Santorum.

I dont know that they actually find Romney appealing, just less offputting than his opponents.

Yup. I had the misfortune of working in a bank that got bought by a bank that had the Mormon "Council of the Twelve" making up the entire Board of Directors.

Unless you have seen it and lived it, you can't believe it. Even I refused to do so for awhile, then the truth set in.

Truly bizarre.

There were 136,000 registered Republicansin Wyoming in 2008.

There were 61,430 Mormon 'members' as of Jan 2009.

Here's another Mormon membership roll (2001) by states.

Lots of Mormons in WY. I was stationed there 30 years ago, and had them knocking on my door fairly constantly. There are probably more there now.

MSM and push polls telling the sheeple that Mitt's the most electable. I swear that's all I've heard, no basis for it but they keep saying it anyway.
