(Newser) – Mitt Romney picked up nine more delegates today on his march toward the magic 1,144 he needs for his party's nomination, reports the AP. The latest ones come from Guam, where 215 representatives voted with a show of hands, giving Romney a unanimous win. Romney also is expected to win today in the territories of the Virgin Islands and Northern Marianas, each of which also has nine delegates, notes ABC News.

In a show of how important each delegate is this year, Romney sent his son Matt to Guam and the Marianas to drum up support. The day's bigger focus will be in Kansas, where 40 delegates are at stake and where Rick Santorum is expected to win, notes the Los Angeles Times.
