Colorado voted to not count votes and they just choose Cruz. People are in an uproar.

Colorado voted on it in August, way before we knew the direction this election was going to go.  Colorado voters agreed to what the state was gonna do.  So you can't really blame them I guess...

The federal government cannot force states to vote a certain way.  Some states do a caucus, some do primaries.  Each state is different.  In August of 2015, Colorado decided they would hold a convention, but choose their nominee based on several meeting delegates have.  So the delegates themselves choose who they want as the nominee.  There was still a Colorado State Republican convention that people attended and shared views, but there was no vote from those in attendance.  The vote was left up to the delegates through a series of meetings.  Ted Cruz won fair and square based on Colorado's GOP rules.

Ted Cruz had many speeches and planned events in Colorado including newspaper articles and air time.  Donald Trump, according to the records, never had planned any ads or even a newspaper article in the state.  It wasn't until last week that Donald Trump's campaign actually had a worker in the state trying to appeal to delegates.  Fact of the matter is, the Ted Cruz campaign was planned and organized for Colorado's style of "election."  Trump's campaign waited till the week of the election and scrambled to slap something together and it failed miserably. 

Colorado Democrats do not follow this style delegate race that the Republican's do.

Found this interesting. Someone online is trying to sell Hillary Clinton's old Oldsmobile she owned from the 90s.  It was parked at the White House for a handful of years.  Lol!

Bernie is gaining steam, but he doesn't have a chance to win in New York.

Cruz is also gaining steam on the Republican side.

Reporter Michelle Fields has lost.  The Florida Prosecutors office today said that they will not press charges against a Trump aide who moved her aside.  The findings and released video by the State of Florida show the Michelle Fields, as a reporter, left the reporter area she wasn't supposed to be in and touched Trump.  She was in a no-go zone.  So in theory, the aides and security detail actually showed restraint with her being where she was.

This honestly shouldn't even be news.  The guy did nothing wrong, and she, as the reporter got in his safety bubble.  And now we learn she was in a spot she wasn't even supposed to have been!

Well, even in the video Wolfwood (I think it was Wolfwood) linked, you could see she was in a place she wasn't supposed to. She was past that barrier they're allowed. But watch, all the femanazi's on Tumblr are going to be up in arms about how the "patriarchy" is against woman's rights and that that man should have gotten a life sentence for even DARING to lay a hand on a woman. Smh.

The prosecutor, a registered Democrat who likes Hillary, said there was nothing illegal done by Trump's aide.  The main investigator, a lady, also said there was nothing Trump's aide did wrong.
