Trump to receive 37 Missouri delegates, Cruz 15
Following the Missouri presidential preference primary, the Missouri Republican Party announced the party’s tentative national convention delegate allocation tally.
Because no candidate won more than 50% of the votes cast, Missouri’s 52 delegates were allocated to the top vote-getter in each Congressional District with a bonus to the top vote-getter statewide.
The following candidates won delegates in Missouri:
Donald Trump: 37 (12 for the statewide win, 5 each for Congressional Districts 1, 2, 3, 6, and 8)
Ted Cruz: 15 (5 each for Congressional Districts 4, 5, and 7)
These results are tentative, pending certification of the primary results by the Missouri Secretary of State.
