Ben Swann Confirms: Delegates Are NOT Bound, Anywhere! New Reality CheckSubmitted by robamichael on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 00:07
Ben Swann's Reality Check may have cleared up our bound delegate question.
The take away is...
The RNC does not recognize a state's ability to bind delegates!!!
Take a look below:
"(FOX19) - One week ago, Reality Check told you about one reason why the Republican Presidential nomination is far from locked up.
But one blogger says Ben got it wrong claiming "Urgent, Ben Swann and Matt Larson are wrong about Rule 38 and delegates being Unbound based on RNC rules."
So, was Ben wrong after all?
The answer in a Reality Check Reply All."
LETTER QUOTE from Jennifer Sheehan, Legal Counsel for the RNC:
“[The] RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.” And, “The national convention allows delegates to vote for the individual of their choice, regardless of whether the person’s name is officially placed into nomination or not.”
