  1. Hipocrite apparently needs some attention.--JorisEnter (talk) 20:50, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
  2. This does a pretty good job of breaking down primary elections.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 02:43, 9 May 2016 (UTC) 02:43, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Republicans embraced them by not adopting these same rules. nobsMr. Trump, tear down this wall... 19:28, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
