MassGOP Announces Allocation Of National Convention Delegates

BOSTON -- Following unanimous ratification by an Allocations Committee that included representatives from the presidential campaigns, the Massachusetts Republican Party today announced the allocation of candidate-specific delegate slots for the different methods of election ahead of this summer's Republican National Convention.

In accordance with the MassGOP's adopted Delegate Selection Plan, the total number of delegates assigned to each candidate was established by the results of the March 1presidential primary, which led to the following delegate totals: 22 for Donald Trump, 8 for John Kasich, 8 for Marco Rubio, and 4 for Ted Cruz. The plan instructs that 27 congressional-district delegates will be elected at caucuses (held on April 30) and that 15 delegates will be at-large, including 12 elected by the Republican State Committee and the 3 RNC members from Massachusetts (State Chairman, National Committeeman, and National Committeewoman).

Also in accordance with the plan, the Allocations Committee - which includes officers and regular members of the State Committee as well as representatives from each of the presidential campaigns receiving delegates - met this week to determine the allocation of candidate-specific delegate slots to the various methods of election. The Allocations Committee unanimously ratified the following allocation:
