Marco Rubio Misspells ‘United States’ In Letter To Alaska GOP

It’s been a rough month for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

After dropping out of the Republican presidential race after his home state primary, Rubio sent a letter asking the Alaska GOP not to release his bound delegates before the national convention.

There was just one thing amiss: he referred to the delegates he won running for the highest office in the “Untied States.”

“The decision to suspend my campaign for president of the Untied States [sic] is not intended to release any national convention delegates bound to me as a result of the 2016 delegate selection process that took place in your state,” he wrote in the letter, addressed to the chair of the state party.

NBC News tweeted a photo of the letter early Wednesday morning.

The undated letter, sent with a carbon copy to national party chair Reince Priebus, is part of Rubio’s effort to keep the delegates he won before dropping out, a move to block frontrunner Donald Trump from securing the nomination in the event of a contested convention.

NBC reported Rubio is asking state parties in 21 states and territories to not release the 172 delegates he won in the race.
