Mississippi GOP has no plans to stack delegates, strategist says

Republican Party strategist Austin Barbour said he attended the county party elections last weekend and said there is no plan to stack delegates.

“Donald Trump won Mississippi (and) Ted Cruz did well, too,” Barbour said. “We need to make sure the people that filled those delegate slots for the national delegate spots truly support those two candidates.”

State rules say even though a delegate may be assigned to cast a ballot for Trump, Cruz or Kasich, if a presidential nominee is not decided after the national convention’s first vote, those delegates can then vote for the candidate of their choice.
