Read the latest updates on the 2012 Delegate chase from John Yob of Strategic National.
Update on Arizona and Florida
We are feeling more and more confident that the Arizona and Florida delegations will indeed be made proportional.

Washington Caucus Update
The Washington Caucuses this weekend once again went very well and we forced a tie with Romney in Pearce County. This is the 2nd weekend in a row with positive results that will lead to both Rick Santorum and Ron Paul earning more delegates than would have been allocated bases on the non-binding straw poll that was previously held. We anticipate that Romney is in the process of losing as many as 15 delegates from the delegate counts that are kept by media organizations. Both Paul and Santorum will be the beneficiaries.
Here is a good synopsis of Pearce County on RedState: http://www.redstate.com/mrrepublicanlawyer/2012/03/25/santorum-ties-romney-for-delegates-at-pierce-county-wa-convention/#comment-24
Missouri Caucus Update
The results from the Missouri County Conventions continue to trickle in and Santorum leads Romney more than 2-1 in State Convention delegates based on domination in the rural counties.
Ron Paul has moved significantly ahead of Romney into 2nd place in Missouri on the strength of a strong showing in Jackson County this weekend.
The current Missouri State Convention Delegate counts are as follows:
- Santorum – 1364
- Paul – 824
- Romney – 566
- Newt – 88
