Phil Gunn, Secretary of State Delberthosemann, Speaker Philip Gunn, and Secretary of State Delberthosemann. This election cycle’s most talked about event has been the GOP convention. Many are wondering if Donald Trump, who is currently campaigning for the nomination, will be able to gather half of the required delegate votes to become the nominee. “We are thrilled about the united group of Mississippi Republicans who will go to Cleveland in July, for the Republican National Convention and who will fully support our soon-to be presidential nominee Donald Trump,” Joe Nosef, Mississippi GOP Chairman, said in a statement. Trump won the Mississippi presidential primaries in March. The forty-one Mississippi Democrats will travel to Philadelphia July 25-28, to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Clinton is likely to receive 34 votes, including those from U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson and Attorney General Jim Hood, as well as those of House minority leader David Baria. Clinton won March’s primary. Six votes will be given to Sanders, which includes Keelan Sanders, one of five party superdelegates. Johnnie Patton (superdelegate) has not yet declared who he will vote for. Superdelegates can choose who they will vote for.
