I have the pleasure of being in California, the state that will likely determine if Donald Trump gets to 1,237 before the convention or if we’ll have a contested convention. By this time in the nomination process, the delegates are pretty much wrapped up, so for the first time since moving out west I’m going to have a say in a Presidential election.
Donald Trump has no idea what it takes to be a delegate. It is an honor that requires many years of consistent commitment to the state, the party, and the country. It is offensive that Trump believes these people are being “bought” by the Ted Cruz campaign. Cruz can handle the rhetoric and insults; it’s part of running a campaign against Trump. Delegates, on the other hand, do not deserve the belittling that they’re receiving from this small, unexceptional man.
