Northern Marianas Caucus: Romney Wins, Takes 9 Delegates

Posted: Updated:

SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Islands -- Another victory for presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. He's won the Republican caucus in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, picking up nine delegates from the U.S. territory.

Romney won 87 percent of the 848 votes cast Saturday on the main islands of Saipan, Tinian and Rota.

Rick Santorum got 6 percent. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich got 3 percent each on the main island of Saipan.

Romney was considered the favorite. His son Matt and wife Laurie visited Saipan, and he was endorsed by Gov. Benigno R. Fitial, chairman of the island's Republican Party.

Fitial says he and the eight other delegates will support Romney at the Republican National Convention in Florida.

Romney also picked up all nine delegates from Guam during the GOP state convention there Saturday.
