A reader asks about South Carolina’s delegates. As with Michigan, there’s no way to know exactly how they’ll be allotted, since half of them are being stripped from the state party. Instead of 47, there will be 24.
In a normal year, three delegates are allotted to the winner of each Congressional District, for a total of 18. There are three ex-officio delegates. And then 26 are awarded to the statewide winner.
This year, with the penalty in place, I don’t think anyone knows how they will be awarded unless they are reinstated. And that can only happen if someone assembles a majority of delegates without them.
