LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) - Only three people showed up to a rally at Michigan GOP headquarters in Lansing to show their dissatisfaction with the party's allocation of delegates between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum following the Feb. 28 primary.
The three people talked to leaders inside GOP headquarters.
State GOP leaders apportioned the at-large delegates on the day after the election, saying that Santorum would get 14 and Romney would get 16.
Leaders explained to the three Santorum supporters that the AP erroneously reported that both candidates would receive 15 candidates.
Michigan GOP leaders said that Santorum had never earned 15 delegates because they decided how many delegates each candidate would get on Feb. 29.
The Santorum camp felt the delegates should have been split evenly for a 15-15 tie, but the party gave them both to Romney because he won the popular vote.
The Santorum campaign also asked the Republican National Committee to look into the change.
Mid-day Monday, Mchigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak issued a statement about the RNC's decision:
"Rest assured, whatever decision the Republican National Committee or the Committee on Contest chooses to make, we will not appeal, we will accept it," Schostak said.
Both Santorum and Romney are campaigning in Ohio and other states for the Super Tuesday votes. The latest poll shows a dead heat in the Buckeye State.
The current GOP delegate count for all four remaining candidates.
