NEW YORK CITY (AP) — Donald Trump is again signaling that he plans to challenge the Republican National Committee to change delegate selection rules.
Trump says: “Nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting. And that’s what’s going to happen.”
Republican rival Ted Cruz has won fewer contests and has been allotted fewer delegates, but has outmaneuvered Trump in organizing state-by-state.
The strategy has allowed Cruz to scoop up delegates who could support him if the nomination requires multiple ballots at the national convention.
Trump has called the party’s delegate selection plan “rigged.” The plan has been public for more than a year and official since October.
The Republican National Committee meets in Florida later this week.
