Rubio wants to keep delegates on lockdown to stop Trump

The Republican primaries have certainly not played out the way most predicted. Marco Rubio had been considered a strong favorite to land the nomination, and win the general election thanks to his Hispanic heritage and youth, among other factors. However, Donald Trump’s candidacy has changed all expectations, to the point that Rubio had to drop out of the race after losing his home state of Florida in the primaries.

Now, it seems the Republican establishment is circling the wagons to try and prevent Trump from getting the nomination. To this end, Rubio has asked his delegates to remain allocated to him until the first round of voting at the convention. Rubio had won 171 delegates during the primaries, which is not a huge number, but still relevant considering Trump may come up just short of the total needed to represent the Republican Party come November. This being the case, each delegate held by nominees who have exited the race helps keep Trump far from that goal.

Some argue this is why Ted Cruz and John Kasich have remained in the race, despite being unable to win the nomination properly through delegates. If they stay in and pick up some delegates, while Rubio holds onto his, it makes the 1,237 needed for the nomination more out of reach for Trump. All eyes are on Cleveland in July, where the Republican National Convention will pick the nominee. If this year has been any indication, it’s that nothing is predictable.
