Trump reportedly didn’t get all Iowa GOP delegates
President Trump collected nearly every delegate in last week’s Iowa Republican caucus, as Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld managed to score just one for himself, according to a report.
Weld, Trump’s longshot primary challenger, could barely make a dent in the commander-in-chief’s total of 39 delegates, according to data tabulated by the Iowa Republican Party (IRP) and obtained by ABC News.
The former Massachusetts governor was supported by 426 caucusgoers, the network reported, while Trump was supported by 31,423.
Fellow GOP primary challenger and former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) did not perform well enough in the caucuses to win himself any delegates. He withdrew his name from the race Friday.
Weld launched his primary challenge in April last year, saying during his campaign launch that “it is time to return to the principles of Lincoln — equality, dignity and opportunity for all.”
Weld previously ran as the vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian party in 2016, with Gary Johnson at the top of the ticket.
