Michigan Republicans Change Delegate Allocation

Michigan Republicans voted to award two at-large delegates to Mitt Romney "despite the party's rules that the two at-large delegates are supposed to be awarded on a proportional basis based on the statewide popular vote," the Detroit Free Press reports.

Romney won the statewide vote by a 41% to 38% margin over Rick Santorum.

"The rest of the state's delegates will be split evenly between Romney and Santorum because each won seven congressional districts across the state. As a result, Romney gets 16 delegates and Santorum 14."
