Trump surrogates attempted to assuage worry amongst supporters Thursday night as Trump is likely to come away with few to no delegate in the state’s Republican presidential convention, including why the candidate won’t even be coming to the state.
In a conference call to supporters, Trump Senior Advisor Alan Cobb informed a group of listeners that the candidate would not be coming to Colorado because New York “was a better use of his time,” when asked why the candidate would not be making his way west from the Empire State.
Cobb, defended the decision saying that “what campaigns do is an allocation of resources and priorities ,” and that the Trump camp “thought it was better for him to be in New York.” Later in the call, Cobb said that the decision was made with the goal of getting a “bigger haul” of delegates.
The campaign staff addressed supporters’ concerns about Cruz’s expected sweep in the Centennial State this weekend, conceding, “if we walk out of here with anything above zero, in some ways will be a success.”
