WINNER: Trump Passes 1,237 Delegates

According to the Associated Press (AP), Donald Trump has surpassed the needed number of Republican delegates (1,237) to receive the GOP nomination for president. The delegate count was boosted by a small number of the Republican Party’s unbound delegates who told the AP that they would support Trump at the convention, including Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard. Pollard said:

“I think he has touched a part of our electorate that doesn’t like where our country is. I have no problem supporting Mr. Trump.”

Steve House, the Colorado GOP Chair and unbound delegate confirmed his support for Trump, saying he likes Trump’s business background. He said: “Leadership is leadership. If he can surround himself with the political talent, I think he will be fine.”

The number of delegates required to receive the nomination is 1,237 delegates; Trump has 1,238.

June 7 is the next key date with 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries.
