Cozen O’Connor: Jim Schultz Discusses Mega Tuesday and the Republican National Convention on NBC10 News

Jim Schultz Discusses Mega Tuesday and the Republican National Convention on NBC10 News

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Jim Schultz, chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Government Law and Regulatory Affairs practice group, discusses the Mega Tuesday presidential primary results on NBC10 News. Jim addressed questions surrounding the upcoming Republican National Convention and the ongoing race for the nomination. When asked about what might happen if there’s a brokered convention, Jim explained, “This means that one of the candidates hasn’t reached the necessary 1,237 delegates during the primary and caucus process, so they come to the convention and during that first round of voting the candidates will have the ability to try to garner some of the support of the uncommitted delegates that are there at the convention. If they don’t get the 1,237 votes after that first round, then chaos ensues, because at that point, a lot of the states’ delegates can change their votes.  They will continue to vote, round by round, until they get to that magic 1,237. But remember, there’s a current rule, right now, in the Republican Party which requires candidates that are being considered at the convention to have won eight states and presently only one candidate has won those eight states.”
