This is just … well it’s just the bee’s knees you guys. We’ve already reported several times here at RedState how bad Trump’s organization is blowing it in Colorado, but believe it or not, they still managed to make things worse. They told their people to vote for Cruz people. Seriously.
See, the delegate ballot consists of numbers, with each number corresponding to a delegate. The campaigns, as campaigns do, hand out literature telling their people who to vote for by listing which numbers to pick. This is so they can get solid or pledged delegates sent to the national convention. The problem for Trump is that they put down some of the wrong numbers. In fact, their recommendations included Cruz pledged delegates.
Seriously. From ABC News.
The ballot numbers listed are wrong for five of the 13 delegates Trump recommends voting for, a major problem because the ballot only shows numbers, not names.
Of the five delegate candidates who correspond with the incorrect numbers of the Trump slate, two are unpledged and one will be bound to Trump rival Ted Cruz.
In addition, his alternate slate also has two candidates numbered incorrectly.
The Trump campaign released an updated slate, but that still contained three errors and still included the delegate number bound to Ted Cruz.
But still, he’ll hire all the best people you guys. His big selling point is what a great businessman and manager he is. He’ll run government like he runs his businesses. We can only assume that’s how he runs his campaign too. And since his businesses consistently fail or go bankrupt, I guess we’ve stumbled on a campaign promise he’s actually keeping.
I’ll leave you with this absolutely correct observation from Aaron Gardner.
It is absolutely unsurprising that Trump accidentally listed pledged Cruz delegates on his own slate. No attention to detail.

I wonder, is attention to detail something that might be important for a President? Just something to think about.
