Problems are reported with the Washoe County results of the Nevada GOP presidential caucus, the chairman of the Washoe GOP said.

“The state is screwing up the reporting of the Washoe results,” Washoe GOP Chairman Dave Buell said of the Nevada State Republican party. “Washoe has reported the correct results, but they (state party officials) can’t seem to get it right.”

The RGJ is contacting the state GOP for a response.

Buell has tried to fix the problem by reporting the correct Washoe results directly to the Reno Gazette-Journal, The Associated Press and ABC News, Buell said.

“We finally went around the state party, and I just gave the results to The AP,’ Buell said. “They asked for precinct by precinct so we sent them all of the precinct information, too. AP ought to be getting that out soon.”

Washoe’s official results are Romney 42 percent (2,836 votes), Gingrich 28 percent (1,876 votes), Paul 17 percent (1,168 votes) and Santorum 12 percent (817 votes).
