Nevada Caucus 2012: Live Updates From The Silver State

Four presidential candidates are looking to score a win in Nevada's 2012 Republican caucus on Saturday.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is favored to win the contest; however, polling has been scarce in the Silver State leading up to the competition.

Romney finished first in Florida's primary election by a wide double-digit margin last Tuesday. The outcome came as a blow to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has signaled he has no intention of dropping out of the race and plans to take his campaign to the convention.

HuffPost's Ryan Grim and Sam Stein report that U.S. Rep. Ron Paul's energized organization could propel the Texas libertarian to finish ahead of Gingrich and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum in Nevada.
