After republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s resounding victory at the Colorado GOP Convention last weekend in Colorado Springs, the Colorado GOP’s twitter account tweeted “#NeverTrump,” according to a report from the Denver Post. The Donald Trump campaign has responded in protest, and Trump called the Colorado GOP Convention “rigged” and “a crooked deal.”
Cruz won all 34 delegates from Colorado, and only lost two alternates to his front-running opponent Donald Trump.
The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!

At the national convention July 18-21 in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump’s campaign could pursue the challenge with the credentials committee. If he wins the challenge, the committee could forbid improperly-elected delegates from voting.
