President Donald Trump will travel to the Golden State next month to visit the California Republican Party in Anaheim after state GOP leadership agreed to comply with the RNC’s bylaws while still managing to deliver a “winner takes all” primary delegate allocation system.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the California Republican Party has set new primary rules that will award a Republican candidate all of the 169 delegates that are up for grabs if they win more than 50 percent of the vote.
This comes after tremendous uproar occurred following the potential elimination of the “winner takes all” delegate system in California.
As previously reported by RSBN, the CAGOP was poised to conform to the RNC’s “Rule 16,” which demanded that states whose primary takes place before March 15 in a primary year switch to a delegate allocation system.
In other words, delegates would have been awarded to a Republican candidate based entirely on the votes from each congressional district, rather than a “winner takes all” system for statewide victors.
This would have spelled disaster for Republican candidates who have historically counted on winning all 169 delegates (more than any other state in the nation) to clinch the nomination.
On Sept. 29, President Trump will head to Anaheim, California, returning to the state on the campaign trail for the first time since 2020.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Trump Senior Advisor Chris LaCivita stated, “President Trump is looking forward to seeing California Republicans at their state convention and is confident of overwhelming success in the upcoming March primary.”
President Trump is strongly leading in the 2024 California Republican primary race. According to a recent poll from the Public Policy Institute of California, President Trump has a 26-point lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
