CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has all but thrown in the towel in Wyoming ahead of Saturday’s Republican convention.
A senior Trump adviser, Alan Cobb, says the billionaire businessman’s campaign made a conscious decision not to commit resources to Wyoming.
Trump picked only up a single delegate in last month’s Wyoming county conventions while rival Ted Cruz scored nine. There are 14 more delegates at stake at this weekend’s state convention.
In a telephone interview Friday with The Associated Press, Cobb said he expects Cruz to sweep what remains of the 29 delegates up for grabs in the Wyoming convention. He says the process is favorable toward party-insider folks like Cruz.
Cruz’s campaign has been working for months lining up support among the Wyoming’s GOP insiders.
