Picking Delegates in Wyoming is not a Simple Task

The delegate selection process in one Super Tuesday state, Wyoming, is a drawn-out and complex affair that draws little attention from the candidates or the media.

Wyoming's Republicans hold 20 days of straw polling, followed by five days of caucusing that begins Tuesday. Five delegates will be chosen in Wyoming on Tuesday, followed by seven more on Wednesday and Saturday. Only Maine has a similar process.

Four years ago, the Wyoming GOP simplified and tried to boost its profile by caucusing on a single day between Iowa and New Hampshire in early January. The Republican National Committee docked Wyoming half its national convention votes for breaking party rules.

Even then, no major candidate visited Wyoming. Just like this time: No one has campaigned or run significant ads in Wyoming.
