he GOP Presidential Primary continues today in D.C., Guam and Wyoming. Nineteen delegates are up for grabs in Washington, D.C. today when the D.C. Republican party holds its caucus. According to Politico, the caucus will be conducted at a single polling place a few blocks from the White House in the Loews Madison Hotel.
Sixteen regular delegates will be allocated proportionally to any candidate getting more than 15 percent. There are three additional Republican National Committee delegates who will be awarded as a bonus to whoever gets the plurality of votes. And if someone gets the majority of votes, they get to take all 19 delegates.
The voting takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time, but results are expected around 9:00 p.m.
Republicans in Guam will hold their convention today to elect the 12 delegates they’ll be sending to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. The island territory will pick delegates, but none of those delegates will be committed to a specific primary candidate — they’ll be free to support whomever they choose.
In Wyoming, Republicans will hold county conventions today to allocate 12 of the state’s 29 delegates to the presidential candidates. The Wyoming Republicans will wait until next month to pick the other 17 delegates. You can follow the Wyoming results here.
