  1. So Rubio just dropped out.
    Can we get a list of names of local politicians who have endorsed – and/or become delegates for ?
    As I recall, any Chicago area politician who is currently in office endorsed ANYONE AND EVERYONE OTHER THAN Donald Trump.
    And once again, Illinois politicians show how just out of touch they are with what voters actually want.
    Despicable.
    Again.

  2. Rubio’s 170 delegates (after tonight) are “unbound” for the first round of convention voting. and unbound means different things in different states. Some may switch over prior to first round some may wait until a majority winner becomes more clear.
    just going to add to any convention mess and mistrust in the process.

  3. Trump won the beauty contest in the Illinois primary, but he did not win all of the delegates. Kasich and Cruz won some of these delegates which were chosen by voters in individual Congressional Districts.

  4. Some of the media types seem unclear on the concept: Illinois is not a “winner take all” primary state.
    Illinois conducts a “beauty contest” for presidential candidates and separate elections for delegates and (Republican) alternates. While Trump won the beauty contest, which carries with it a number of delegates, his slate did not carry all of the delegate slates in every Congressional District; Cruz and Kasich actually won some delegates in Illinois.
    For what it is worth, the Illinois RINO establishment opposed Ronald Reagan in 1980 too.
