The credential committee met Wednesday evening to affirm the intent of a memo that was submitted to the Republican National Committee on February 7. Again, no rules were altered, no changes were made and no votes were ignored.
The original credentials committee met and voted on February 4 and it was unanimous. Candidates that receive 15% of the statewide vote total will be allocated delegates proportionally starting with the candidate who wins the majority of the statewide votes. The intent of the committee is not in dispute.
What is in dispute is the interpretation of the memo sent on February 7. On February 29, the committee met via phone conference and again voted to implement the same process to at-large delegates. The majority of the committee voted the original intent was to give candidates that receive 15% of the statewide vote total delegates proportionally starting with the candidate who wins the majority of the statewide votes.
Some have widely misinterpreted what is a complicated process. Others are intentionally muddying the waters to benefit other campaigns. Again, thank you for taking the time to reach out.
