Hmmmmmm: Rubio sends letter to Republican officials stating that he wants to keep his delegates

My God: He’s making a play to win the nomination on the 15th ballot.
No, actually, I think what he’s doing here is putting his #NeverTrump beliefs into practice.
Rubio has sent letters to Republican officials in states where he has won delegates, charging he wants to keep his delegates, even though he’s no longer an active candidate.
Representatives from Rubio’s network said the former candidate wants to retain his delegates in order to keep his options open in the coming months. Campaigns are preparing for the possibility of a contested national convention in July that could feature an intense fight for every available delegate…
Alaska had already divvied up Rubio’s five delegates to Trump and Ted Cruz. However, since the actual people have not been selected yet, the state party said the delegates will go back to Rubio.
In Oklahoma, state party Chairwoman Pam Pollard said she received a letter from Rubio saying he has not released his 12 delegates from that state.

Rubio took an oath at the beginning to support the candidate that will become the Party's choice, so no.
