Trump is the nominee, but Colorado didn’t help much

The delegates to the Republican National Convention are making their votes. The fight is over. And Colorado, as required, went with Sen. Ted Cruz until the last.

Thirty-one of Colorado’s delegates voted for Cruz, four went for Donald Trump and two abstained, according to Peter Marcus, a reporter for the Durango Herald.

That’s actually not bad for Trump: Colorado’s caucus rules had bound 30 delegates to vote for Cruz, meaning Trump won over a majority of the unbound delegates.

A lot of people were expecting some kind of stunt (maybe another walkout) by the Colorado delegation, but it didn’t materialize. Still, the Colorado delegation reportedly was booed.

And, of course, the delegation’s votes didn’t ultimately matter. New York’s votes finished the job and made Donald Trump the nominee of the Republican Party of the United States of America.
