Donald Trump supporters walked out in protest after delegate convention elected Cruz loyalists – for slots that Trump won!
At the district delegate convention in Buford, Georgia Saturday, Cruz and Rubio loyalists formed an alliance to overpower Trump supporters and blocked them from being elected as delegates.
Trump supporter and delegate Ronnie Kurtz related to Breitbart News that the hall was stacked with Cruz delegates. According to the primary results, Trump was to receive two delegates and one was for Rubio. However, Trump was given NONE. Cruz supporters did not challenge the Rubio delegate at all, but when it came time to vote on the Trump delegates, they were blocked.
Kurtz said the Cruz supporters argued in favor of their alternative delegate, on the premise that he had “been in the party from the beginning and wouldn’t embarrass us at the national convention.”
After Trump delegates were voted out, all the Trump delegates walked out in protest, taking with them the American flag on display which they had brought in.
“So, after a hard fought campaign in which Trump won the primary in district 7 fair and square, no one who supports him will be representing the district in his slots at the national convention,” Kurtz added.
