It looks like Trump may be also winning another 50 delegates from South Carolina in the spring if he continues to win!
“Each congressional district delegate … shall be bound during the first ballot at the convention to the presidential candidate who received the greatest number of votes …. If the candidate who received the greatest number of votes in that particular delegate’s home district is not placed in nomination, a delegate must then be bound to the congressional district’s second or third place finisher in the presidential preference primary, respectively. If none of the top three finishers in the congressional district presidential preference primary are placed in nomination, delegates shall be unbound.
Each delegate-at-large shall be bound for the first ballot to the candidate who received the largest number of votes statewide in the presidential preference primary. If the candidate who receives the greatest number of statewide votes in the presidential preference primary is not placed in nomination, a delegate must then be bound to the state’s second or third place finisher in the presidential preference primary, respectively. If none of the top three finishers in the statewide presidential preference primary are placed in nomination, delegates shall be unbound. [South Carolina Republican Party Rules – Rule 11(b)(4), (5)]”

March 2016: The County Conventions convene to elect delegates to the District and State Conventions [South Carolina Code of Laws – Section 7-9-70] [South Carolina Republican Party Rules – Rule 5 (c)(5)]


April 2016: District conventions convene to elect National Convention District Delegates according to the results of the primary. [Rule 6 (c)(6)(a)]

It sure would be nice if the media would explain these things to the public.  So far…I haven’t heard a word on any of this? Has anyone else?


Saturday 7 May 2016: The State Convention convenes to elect the At-Large National Convention District Delegates according to the results of the primary. [Section 7-9-100] … the State Convention shall … elect a national committeeman and national committeewoman and to elect at-large delegates … to the National Convention. [South Carolina Republican Party Rules – RULE 7 (b)(6)]

This is a year that the people are learning just what goes on state by state.  If it sounds confusing….it’s because most have never heard of or known just how this election process actually plays out state by state.  Now that Trump won all districts in South Carolina…what will this mean if he continues to win the majority of states?  Stay tuned this is one interesting election!
Who knew we would all have to know and understand what all the states do to choose a candidate in order to understand why this or that happens later?
