RNC After 100 years or so, it’s time for a change. 


Now, Colorado was a bad delegate story to begin with. A planned direct primary vote was canceled. 

But a friend relates the disturbing story of his moderate Republican brother who owns a small railroad and who caucused for Trump. Trump won that local caucus by 60 percent. But as the process moved up to the county level, then the congressional district level, and finally the state level, 

Trump got zero delegates. 

At a minimum, this process was wacky, convoluted, and opaque. At its worst, it was rigged against GOP voters.

Other states have produced similar horror stories. 

And Pennsylvania may be positioned to deliver the most ridiculous. 

Whoever wins the direct Pennsylvania primary next Tuesday gets only 17 out of 71 delegates. 

So no matter who wins, 50-something delegates will still be uncommitted. That’s crazy.

Actually, I think the whole GOP selection process is crazy. 

Why not a simple, direct, winner-take-all primary election? 

The person with the most votes gets all the delegates. 

Nice and simple.

Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus might want to think about this progressive democratic reform. 

After 100 years or so, it’s time for a change.
