Former Republican Virginia congressman Virgil Goode tells Breitbart News that Donald Trump supporters picked up only three of 13 available at-large delegate slots at Virginia’s state convention Saturday.
“I think 3 of the 13 are Trump after the first ballot,” said Goode, a Trump supporter.
Trump won the Virginia primary with 17 pledged delegates to Marco Rubio’s 16 and Ted Cruz’s eight back on March 1. But after the first ballot, Ted Cruz is mopping up the delegates in the event of a second ballot at a contested convention.
“The individual vote was very close on the delegate slate,” Goode said, but he noted that the chief Cruz spokesman in the state Ken Cuccinelli was able to get more Cruz supporters out to the convention. Goode said that he believes Morton Blackwell, elected Republican National Committeeman, is a Cruz supporter.
