Anti-Trump Delegate Scores Court Victory In Virginia

A federal judge in Virginia ruled in favor of an anti-Trump delegate Thursday, helping clear the way for the Never-Trump movement to cause trouble at the Republican Convention in Cleveland next week.
In a decision released Tuesday afternoon, U.S. District Judge Robert E. Payne sided with Carroll "Beau" Correll, who had filed suit alleging that laws binding a state's delegates to a particular candidate are unconstitutional.
Virginia law dictates that delegates be awarded on a winner-take-all basis--which conflicts with the Republican National Committee's rules, which require states voting before March 15 to award delegates on a proportional basis. Trump won the March 1 Virginia primary with just under 35 percent of the vote.
Correll, however, supported Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign--and he argued that the law requiring him to vote for Trump at the convention violates his constitutional rights.
