Donald Trump's reversal Tuesday on the Republican Party's loyalty pledge could jeopardize the 50 delegates he won in last month's South Carolina primary.

"Breaking South Carolina's presidential primary ballot pledge raises some unanswered legal questions that no one person can answer," South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore told Time magazine on Thursday. "However, a court or national convention Committee on Contests could resolve them.

"It could put delegates in jeopardy," Moore said.

South Carolina was among several states that required candidates to pledge support to the eventual Republican nominee in order to be placed on the ballot, Time reports.

Trump won the Palmetto State's primary on Feb. 20, but his reversal on the pledge he signed in September with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has anti-Trump forces planning how to deny him the delegates, according to Time.

To get on the ballot, Trump signed a pledge to "hereby affirm that I generally believe in and intend to support the nominees and platform of the Republican Party in the November 8, 2016 general election," Time reports.

No South Carolina delegates or alternatives have yet been selected to attend the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland in July.
