Tuesday 1 March 2016: All 28 delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's District Conventions. In addition, each District chooses delegates to the Alaska State Republican Convention. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Article V. Section 15]

A Presidential Candidate must receive a 13% of vote of the total statewide vote in order to receive any delegates to the National Convention. The delegates are allocated proportionally among those candidates receiving 13% or more of the vote. Round down from 0.49% and up from 0.50%. If rounding results in too many delegates, subtract the excess delegates from the candidate entitled to delegates who received the fewest votes. If rounding results in a too few delegates, add additional delegates to the candidate who received the most votes. [Section 15: (f)(3)]

If a Qualified Presidential Candidate drops out prior to the Republican State Convention, the percentage of national delegates pledged to that candidate shall be reapportioned among the Qualified Presidential Candidates. [Section 15: (f)(9)].

Delegate count recalculated after Rubio suspends

Posted by Suzanne Downing on March 17, 2016

ANCHORAGE - Ted Cruz and Donald Trump will each have 14 delegates assigned to them, now that Sen. Marco Rubio has suspended his campaign.

According to Alaska Republican Party rules, (Article 5, Section 15, Paragraph 9) if a presidential candidate drops out before the state convention, the percentage of national delegates pledged to that candidate "shall be reapportioned among the Qualified Presidential Candidates." The delegate count is recalculated according to a mathematical formula.

"For those who wondered why it was so important that we determine which district they were in before they voted in the Presidential Preference Poll, it's for exactly this type of scenario, where we have to recalculate the 28 bound votes," said Peter S. Goldberg, Party chairman. "Marco Rubio has suspended his campaign, but we have not yet chosen delegates. All we have done at this point is recalculate."

Prior to that recalculation, Ted Cruz would have had 12 delegates, Donald Trump 11, and Marco Rubio 5.

"The vote was close and while Sen. Cruz had the total vote overall, when it was recalibrated, Cruz got 14.39 and Trump got 13.61, and, by our historically used method, we round to the nearest whole number," Goldberg said.

Prior to that recalculation, Ted Cruz would have had 12 delegates, Donald Trump 11, and Marco Rubio 5.

FINAL NUMBERS: 23,010 Alaska Republicans took part in the Presidential Preference Poll -- one out of six Republicans.

Cruz: 8,369
Trump: 7,740
Rubio: 3,488
Carson: 2,492
Kasich: 918

The party state convention takes place in Fairbanks, April 28-30. The national convention is in Cleveland, Ohio, July 18-21.

Marco Rubio to Retain Five Alaska Delegates

ANCHORAGE, AK - Former presidential candidate Marco Rubio has requested - and been granted - the right to keep the five delegates he won during the Alaska Republican Party's Presidential Preference Poll on March 1.

"We treated the Marco Rubio campaign in the same manner we treated all other campaigns that suspended," said Peter S. Goldberg, chairman of the Alaska Republican Party. "A suspended campaign means the candidate has dropped but needs to retain his campaign infrastructure in order to pay bills and close up operations. But in this case, we have today received a request from Senator Rubio stating his desire to retain the delegates bound to him, at least through the first nominating ballot at the national convention."

The delegate count has been reset to: Ted Cruz: 12
Donald Trump: 11
Marco Rubio: 5

"Senator Rubio will have his five delegates at the national convention," Goldberg said.

The Alaska State Convention is April 28-30 in Fairbanks, and the National Convention begins July 18 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Alaska will have 28 delegates and 25 alternates attending the national convention, the names of whom will be chosen during the state convention process.

 

Tuesday 1 March - Tuesday 29 March 2016: Legislative District Conventions. Each District chooses delegates to the Alaska State Republican Convention.

 

Thursday 28 April - Saturday 30 April 2016: The Alaska State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention chooses 25 of 28 delegates from Alaska to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the District Conventions.

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Alaska's Republican Party, are elected at today's state convention and will attend the National Convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.

Delegates to the National Convention shall be elected from the Delegates to the State Convention ... [and] ... shall be pledged to support a Qualified Presidential Candidate ... so long as their preferred Candidate maintains an active campaign. After the second round of balloting ... if the Candidate to which the Delegate is pledged is the candidate receiving the fewest number of votes ..., the Delegate is no longer required to support that candidate. If a ... delegate ... pledged to a ... Presidential Candidate who is no longer a candidate for the Republican Nomination for President as of the date of the National Convention, that delegate ... shall be deemed non-pledged. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Article V. Section 15: (f)(4)]
