The Republican National Committee wants everyone to know that no matter what happens tomorrow in Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri, none of it really matters. RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer emails:
For those of you covering the race for the GOP presidential nomination and writing about the current delegate count, please keep in mind the no delegates will be awarded tomorrow.
Colorado is a non-binding precinct caucus. Their 36 delegates will be chosen at district conventions held between March 31 – April 13, 2012, and at the state convention on April 14, 2012. .
Minnesota is a non-binding precinct caucus. Their 40 delegates will be chosen at district conventions held between April 14 – 21, 2012, and at a state convention on May 5, 2012. Delegates are not bound unless the state convention passes a resolution to bind the delegates.
Missouri will hold a primary tomorrow that is not recognized as being a part of any delegate allocation or selection process . A precinct caucus will be held on 3/17/2012 to begin the process of choosing their 52 delegates which will be chosen at district conventions on April 21, 2012, and a state convention on June 2, 2012. Candidates for delegate must state a presidential preference at the time of nomination and will be bound to support that candidate for one ballot at the national convention.
Spicer also includes a chart of the official delegate count which is above. Notice how it differs from the official Associated Press delegate count below:
The official RNC tally has assigned no delegates based on Iowa's results, the AP appears to give all 28 to Romney.
