If we do, we can choose the method for delegate selection, if we don't, the delegates will be proportional.

    I don't see how the Several States can usurp the individual party rules on how they will nominate their candidates.

    MI was only "punished" by the DNC (which Hillary won) not by the RNC. And why not? New Hampshire's law is what is causing a lot of issues and making them jump everyone that jumps them into December
