Washington D.C: 41.5% (2nd, Rubio surges 28%. With all primaries concluded, final delegate count is 1054 Paul - 976 Rubio, we must wait until the convention. Santorum's endorsement may finalize my fate. In other news, O'Malley wins the nomination under the Democratic Party which is unexpected. There it is, Santorum endorses Rubio.)

The final delegate count is Paul 1054 to Rubio 1059. 5 delegates.

Five delegates made me lose a 4 hour campaign, from July 2015 to October 2016.

The rise and fall of Rand Paul.

Cool story, but a sad ending. Would have wanted to know, if you were able to beat O'Malley in the general election. :D Did you already have any ideas for choosing your running mate?
