Colorado’s caucuses are nonbinding, and the actual delegates weren’t assigned until the state Republican assemblies, which concluded Saturday.

Santorum said last week that he is leaving the race, appearing to clear the way for a Romney candidacy to challenge President Barack Obama.

But many of the “unpledged” delegates say they’re not ready to choose Romney, saying they prefer a candidate besides Romney. So Romney is not sure to end up with most of Colorado’s votes at this summer’s RNC in Tampa, Fla.

There was a strong undercurrent of dissension Saturday at the University of Denver when Republicans wrapped up their three-day assignment process.
