Mitt Romney finished a distant second in the Kansas Republican caucuses, but has won nearly a clean sweep of the 27 delegates at stake today in contests in three island territories, according to the Associated Press.
Romney won all nine GOP delegates from the Northern Mariana Islands after a vote at the territorial convention, and nine more from Guam. In the U.S. Virgin Islands, seven of nine delegates will go to Romney, one to Ron Paul, and one will be uncommitted, according to the Associated Press.
Residents of the island territories cannot vote in the presidential election, but both parties allow them to participate in the nominating process. Romney's son, Matt, campaigned in the Northern Mariana Islands. Paul paid a visit to the Virgin Islands in February.
American Samoa will also award nine delegates after a convention March 13. Twenty-three delegates are at stake in Puerto Rico's March 18 primary.
