Romney Waves Goodbye

After a less than Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney suspended his campaign.  Most of you probably already saw the news.  But I have been asked a couple times what suspended versus dropping out means.  It means he still holds his delegates for a little while.  He might be able to use them as bargaining chips.  For the Republican party, the individual state parties reallocate their delegates, but I believe it is not until the Convention.  Romney may well be hoping to be Vice-President Romney or to suggest a nominee.  If it had been a Democrat, like Edwards, the delegates are not redistributed.

    This is a good post. Very informative. How do the delegates get redistributed? Are there people who are like Romney dropped out so now I pick McCain? I don’t think I’m a fan of the redistribution thing.
