CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Donald Trump’s West Virginia campaign chairman says the GOP presidential front-runner will be visiting the state sometime before the May 10 primary.

But Mike Stuart, who is also a former state Republican Party chairman, declined to say when or where Trump would visit. Stuart told The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1SZVNEM ) that the Trump campaign is committed to winning West Virginia’s popular vote as well as the delegate vote.

The popular presidential vote in West Virginia doesn’t determine how delegates are allocated. The determination is made by voting for individual delegates. There are 220 people running for 22 at-large spots to the Republican National Convention.

Trump can win up to 31 of the state’s 34 delegates, Ted Cruz can win as many as 30 and John Kasich can win a maximum of 14.
