WYTHEVILLE, Va. (AP) - Despite his big March 1 primary win in Virginia’s 9th District, Donald Trump picked up one delegate to Ted Cruz’s two to serve as their delegates at the Republican National Convention.

The Roanoke Times (https://bit.ly/1XphtOo ) reports that delegates were selected Saturday by district Republicans in Wytheville (WITH’-vihl).

Delegates elected Saturday will be bound on the first nomination ballot at the GOP convention.

The three picked Saturday are the first delegates elected in Virginia. Forty-six delegates will be decided later this month and in May at other congressional district conventions and a state convention.

While Trump won every county in the coalfields district in the primary, the Cruz campaign had the edge with party insiders.



The Cruz delegates are Jordan Labiosa and Kyle Kilgore, while Trump’s delegate is Tucker Davis.
