The island of Guam had their primary and the only committed delegate they awarded was won by the Tednado. Yeah, one delegate.
Also on Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz picked up a delegate Saturday from the far-away territory of Guam, but the big winner on the island this weekend was “uncommitted.”
Guam’s Republican Party met early Saturday morning — Friday evening in Eastern Time — to elect delegates to this summer’s convention in Cleveland. six delegates were elected, but only one of them, Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo, has publicly endorsed a presidential candidate — Ted Cruz, according to party Executive Director Juan Carlos Benitez.
Benitez, himself a delegate, remains uncommitted, as do the other four elected delegates.
Benitez said the entire Guam delegation, the six delegates elected Saturday as well as the party chairman and the territory’s two RNC reps, who all serve as automatic convention delegates, will meet within the next two weeks to hear from the four presidential campaigns and announce their endorsements.
Guam does not hold a traditional primary or caucus, where candidates win delegates based on a presidential preference vote. Instead, delegates are elected directly at a party convention, and those elected delegates are free to support whomever they choose. Both the Republican and Democratic parties allow Guam and the other U.S. territories to participate in the presidential nomination process, although territories may not vote in the general election.
Guam Republicans met at the Dusit Thani Guam Resort in Tumon, where they heard phone calls, videos and letters from the four remaining candidates.
I dunno guys, if Trump can’t win over Guam, can we really trust him to defeat ISIS?!?! OK, sorry, I’m arguing like a Trumpbot.
