Detriotnews.com reported: Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Thursday she will pledge her national delegate vote to presidential front-runner Donald Trump since the New York billionaire won last month’s primary.
McDaniel said she and Republican National Committeewoman Kathy Berden will fill two of Trump’s 11 at-large delegates. Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema is expected pledge his vote to Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz when delegates are selected at this weekend’s Michigan Republican Party state convention in Lansing.
The state chairwoman’s Trump pledge comes after her uncle, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, mounted a concerted national effort to deny Trump the nomination.
In 2012, McDaniel campaigned for her uncle’s GOP presidential campaign in Michigan and was beside her father, Scott Romney, at the Tampa, Florida, national convention when he cast 25 of the state delegation’s 30 votes for Mitt Romney.
