HARRISONBURG, Va. — Supporters of Ted Cruz dominated a slate of delegates that Virginia Republicans chose Saturday at their state convention, further demonstrating the Texas senator’s mastery of the delegate-selection process.
Of the 13 national delegates picked by party activists here, 10 are Cruz supporters and three support Donald Trump. The tally represents the biggest chunk up for grabs of the 49 total delegates who will represent the state at the national convention in Cleveland this summer.
Ken Cuccinelli II, a Cruz surrogate and former Virginia attorney general, boasted that they could have picked up even more if they wanted to.
The delegates include Cuccinelli; Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; national committeewoman-elect Cynthia Dunbar; Del. Kathy J. Byron (Bedford); Del. Timothy D. Hugo (Fairfax) and Subba R. Kolla of Loudoun County, who is the state’s first Indian American delegate to a national convention.
