Why Wyoming?

Romney wins!

OK, it's Wyoming.

But there are interesting parallels to Nevada's Republican caucus on Jan. 19.

Wyoming moved up its caucus to get more attention. It was largely ignored by all the candidates, save Mitt Romney and his sons who campaigned there. And there was scant media attention paid to the run-up.

Ryan Erwin, the Romney's Nevada campaign head, acknowledged last week that there won't be the same attention paid here as in South Carolina, which is holding its Republican primary the same day as Nevada.

But he said that the campaign was hoping that a series of early state victories (such as in Wyoming) could produce a noticeable bounce.
