In accordance with the prophecy.
To refresh your memory: Washington State has 44 delegates, winner-take-most (majority takes all) proportional primary (20 percent threshold), with statewide and CD delegates. Closed primary (deadline to switch is next week; deadline for first-time voters is next month), but it’s all mail-in…..
Anyway, it turns out that Ted Cruz has already done the work – before the deadline – that will ensure that the people picking the actual delegates (and the delegates themselves!) will be people who rather like Ted Cruz. As usual, his team started early: “In Washington, Cruz named a state leadership team in November and had slates of delegates lined up for recent county conventions and legislative-district caucuses.” And, given that the pool of potential delegates has already been created, it’s pretty likely that the end result in Washington State will be the same as in other ones: to wit, one where Ted Cruz steamrollers his opposition when it comes time to picked pledged delegates.
