INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Donald Trump’s Indiana chairman is among the 57 people picked as the state’s national Republican convention delegates, along with several party leaders who’ve openly criticized his candidacy.
The Indiana Republican Party released the names of the state delegation Thursday, a day after it was finalized by party officials amid worries from Trump’s supporters that they’re being shut out from delegate selection around the country.
Trump Indiana campaign chairman Rex Early is among the delegates who will be committed to a presidential candidate for the first national convention ballot based on Indiana’s May 3 primary results, but not on any subsequent votes.
Some delegates selected over the weekend at congressional district meetings complained about receiving email threats from Trump supporters. State police say a review found the messages weren’t criminal.
