ABC News digs into the process of how each state in the Republican primary’s delegate count is determined.
“Delegates are allotted to states based on two factors. The first is a mathematical formula connected to a state’s congressional districts… The second determining factor is a bit more puzzling to a non-political wonk. In addition to congressional districts, delegate totals are also based on the Republican Party’s influence throughout the particularly state. State’s get ‘bonus delegates’ for hitting various marks; electing a Republican governor, electing a majority of Republican leadership to either chamber of the state’s legislature, electing a Republican senator within the six year period between Jan. 1, 2006 and Dec. 31, 2011, etc.”
