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.”

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
