Santorum Ties Romney for Delegates at Pierce County, WA Convention?!

Rick Santorum appears to have dealt Mitt Romney a surprising setback at the Pierce County Republican Convention yesterday.  Although Romney won the county caucuses by 12%, Santorum appears to have tied Romney for delegates according to unofficial results early this morning. Below is a district by district breakdown based on delegate counting inside the convention.  While conventional wisdom has Romney winning a vast majority of delegates from Washington based on his 13% statewide margin of victory, tonight’s results in Pierce County challenge that assumption.  This can only be good news for the Santorum campaign, on top of the Louisiana victory.
