Romney, GOP, cruise to wins in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans won easily in Wyoming Tuesday, NBC said.

The home state of former Vice President Dick Cheney gave Romney its three electoral votes in a landslide and also re-elected Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., by a wide margin over Democrat Tim Chesnut, along with Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., in the state's only House race.

With 6 percent of the votes tallied, Romney had 73 percent to 25 percent for President Obama.

A ballot measure guaranteeing the right of residents to seek their own health care also passed easily. The measure, Amendment A, was seen as a largely symbolic rejection of President Obama's healthcare reform plan.
