Trump Promises Lawsuit Over Louisiana Delegates
Donald Trump has responded to losing delegates to Ted Cruz in Louisiana, even though the Texas Senator came in second-place.
Just to show you how unfair Republican primary politics can be, I won the State of Louisiana and get less delegates than Cruz-Lawsuit coming
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2016
“Welcome to the Republican Party,”Trump said to ABCNews, “wat’s going on in the Republican Party is a disgrace.”
“I won Louisiana and now I hear [Cruz]’s trying to steal delegates.”
“I have so many more votes and so many more delegates and, frankly, whoever at the end, whoever has the most votes and the most delegates should be the nominee,” Trump said.
The Hill reports:
Cruz could end up getting 10 more delegates from Louisiana than Trump, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper reported that Cruz is likely to pick up the five delegates left behind when Marco Rubio ended his campaign as well as the state’s five unbound delegates who can back a candidate of their choosing.
Cruz spokesman Ron Nehring late Sunday tweeted that Trump’s time might be better spent “reading rules” instead of sending “hate-tweets.”
