An interesting question is what will happen to states (GOP side) that have had their national convention delegations cut in half as a penalty for choosing them too early, if, at the convention, rules-makers relent and allow the states their full complement of delegates. Do the alternates chosen first then become delegates also, or does a “shadow slate” then get credentials? Because that question is open, it becomes important to keep track not just of who the delegates are, but who the alternates are. In Wyoming, everybody reported that the delegate breakdown for now is Romney 8, Thompson 3, and Hunter 1. But I did some more digging. Here is the breakdown of the ALTERNATE delegates selected last Saturday in Wyoming: Romney 5, Uncommitted 4, Thompson 2, and McCain 1. (Just in case anybody is really keeping score.)
