Early Saturday morning, Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney scored a victory in the Northern Mariana Islands caucuses, picking up 9 delegates from the U.S. territory after garnering 87 percent of the vote.

The Romney camp released the following statement:

“Now the voters of the Northern Mariana Islands—nearly 8,000 miles from Washington, D.C.—have spoken,” the Republican presidential front-runner said in a statement after the victory. “And what they’ve said today is that they want to bring change to their beautiful islands by bringing change to our nation’s capital.”

Mitt Romney also picked up all nine delegates from Guam on Friday.
