Donald Trump’s presidential campaign said Monday that it will officially challenge strategic maneuvering that could give Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas a sharp lead in the final delegate tally from the Louisiana Republican primary, despite the billionaire’s 3-point victory during the state’s election on March 5.
A group of so-called “unbound” delegates and others previously pledged to Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida could rally behind Cruz, the Wall Street Journal reported last week, giving the senator up to 10 more delegates from the state than Trump will receive.
Those sorts of technical maneuvers — part of the complicated delegate-based system for nominating the party’s presidential candidate — have been the subject of intrigue amid speculation of a possible contested convention in July. Members of the GOP establishment who oppose Trump believe it may be the best and last hope to keep the billionaire from clinching the nomination.
