After Donald Trump failed to adequately campaign in Colorado and conceded the state’s 34 delegates to Ted Cruz amid controversial election rule changes, the billionaire blasted the state party’s system as “rigged” and “totally unfair.” However, Sen. Rand Paul disagrees; the system may be “biased” toward the establishment, but it’s not rigged:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said early Tuesday that the GOP presidential primary’s rules favor the Republican establishment.
“I hear someone’s been saying that they’re rigged,” he said on MSNBC, referencing GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
“They’re not rigged – they’re biased,” Paul added. “Rigged would mean that they’re illegal or shady. It’s done somewhat in favor of the establishment.”
Paul added that both Trump and Cruz must pay close attention to the Republican National Convention’s rules in July, as “there’s always people trying to change the rules to their advantage.” Case in point: Trump chose to write off the rule changes in Colorado, and it cost him.
