Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked up nine more delegates Saturday, winning unanimous backing at the Guam GOP convention. Republicans on the tiny Pacific island decided to shun traditional paper ballots and all 215 eligible to vote at the convention backed Romney with a show of hands. Though Guam’s Republican National Convention delegates are technically uncommitted all nine had pledged to vote for the candidate chosen at the state convention, said Jerry Crisostomo, convention co-chair.
Approximately 3,000 registered Republicans in the three inhabited islands are eligible to vote. Republicans will choose six delegates to the national convention, and six alternates. Three other GOP officials — Fitial, a national committeeman and a national committeewoman — also will go to the national convention as delegates because of the offices they hold. Regardless of who wins the caucus, the islands’ nine delegates are free to back whoever they choose at the national convention. Residents of Guam and the Northern Marianas are U.S. citizens but are not allowed to vote in the presidential election in November.
