Rubio Decides to Keep Delegates for Contested Convention

Even though Sen. Marco Rubio suspended his campaign, the former GOP presidential candidate is attempting to keep every delegate he won while running for President.

The move is unusual and, according to NBC News, it reflects that there are preparations to contest the convention this summer when the GOP presidential candidate will be chosen.

Rubio's decision comes as Donald Trump backed away from an earlier pledge to support the Republican party's nominee if he is treated unfairly after winning more delegates than his rivals.

Rubio aide Alex Burgos told MSNBC that while the Florida senator is "no longer a candidate," he "wants to give voters a chance to stop Trump."
