Trump blasts 'rigged' rules on Republican delegates

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign event at an airplane hanger in Rochester, New YorkBy John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump lashed out at what he called the party’s “rigged” delegate selection rules on Monday after rival Ted Cruz swept all of Colorado’s 34 delegates over the weekend. The New York billionaire said the process of selecting national convention delegates, which varies state by state, was set up to protect party insiders and shut out insurgent candidates. “The system is rigged, it’s crooked,” Trump said on Fox News on Monday, alleging the Colorado convention results showed voters were being denied a voice in the process.
