Just one week after the Colorado debacle, Another Mountain West state held its quadrennial convention to select its delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.
The long process of delegate selection actually began in February and continued through last month’s regional conventions where Ted Cruz picked up 9 delegates, Donald Trump got 1 and 2 were elected to attend the convention as unpledged delegates, able to vote for whomever they believe is the best candidate.
Today’s state convention selected an additional 14 delegates. Additionally, 3 state party office holders attend as unpledged delegates.
You can see see the complete results along with a detailed explanation of the rules and process for delegate selection HERE.
The results from today’s Wyoming convention should not surprise anyone who has followed the process…Ted Cruz crushed Donald Trump, whose campaign once again failed to organize or even print a list of delegates for which participants could vote.
More from Reuters…
Republican U.S. presidential hopeful Ted Cruz won all 14 delegates at stake on Saturday in Wyoming, besting rival Donald Trump, who made little effort to win the rural state, and further narrowing the gap in the race for the party’s nomination.
Cruz is trying to prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. By continuing to rack up small wins, Cruz is gaining ground on the New York real estate mogul, who has thus far failed to shift his focus on the local-level campaigning necessary to win delegates.
