Arizona may already be on board, according to the New York Post.
From the New York Post:
Almost a quarter million Republican ballots have already been cast in Arizona’s largest county, potentially giving Trump a big leg up in the primary, experts say.
“That banking of votes early on does help Trump tremendously, no matter what happens,” said Richard Herrara, a political science professor at Arizona State University. “He’s probably got a pretty sizable lead, so he’s just got to hold on.”
Statistics from Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, show voters in Arizona’s largest county returned 249,703 ballots in the 2016 GOP presidential primary as of Thursday, more than the 248,128 cast for the entire 2012 contest.
Arizona is a big prize because the winner collects all 58 of its delegates.They are not voting early because they like Washington.
(My money is on Doctor Kelli Ward, a Fairmont, West Virginia, to knock out John McCain.)
Trump called for a wall. The state that fought Obama for the right to defend its borders (a right denied by the Supreme Court) looks to be boarding that train.
This is why President Obama and the Democratic Party are throwing the kitchen sink at him now. They fear that once nominated, they will not be able to stop him.
