Colorado Republicans cancel presidential vote at 2016 caucus, by John Frank. The Cruz campaign captured all 34 delegates at a series of seven congressional district meetings this month, effectively an election of national delegates by party insiders and activists — that left roughly 90 percent of the more than 1 million Republican voters on the sidelines. Trump tweeted:
The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!
How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger — totally unfair!
How could it happen?
Cruz supporters worked quietly behind the scenes to build an organization to get like-minded Republicans to the March 1 precinct caucuses and capitalized on the Trump campaign’s failure to adapt to the system.
This year’s US election have been easily the most entertaining since the 1960s. What a blunder!
Except for the actual delegates to July’s national convention, Colorado Republicans who want to have a say in the future of their party have mostly been stripped of a role in the most interesting and surprising nominating struggle in decades.
UPDATE: Meanwhile Sanders wins Wyoming with the voters, 56% to 44%, but Clinton gets 11 delegates to Sanders 7. US “democracy” is in danger of becoming a cruel joke.
