Nearly all of Delaware's 16 delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July will be supporting Donald Trump, no matter how many ballots it may take to elect a nominee, Trump campaign chairman Rob Arlett said Saturday.

"I have been told that we would very likely get 15 on the second ballot," Arlett told The News-Journal in Wilmington. The Delaware Republican Party held its convention on Saturday.

"We have confidence, at the Trump campaign, that they will follow through to represent the will of the people throughout the process in Cleveland," Arlett said.

Delaware was among five states Trump swept in primaries on Tuesday, with 60 percent of the vote. He picked up the 16 delegates.

They are bound to support the developer on the first ballot at the July convention.

To win the Republican nomination, a candidate must have 1,237 delegates.

"The people of Delaware have spoken, right?" Robert Stout, a member of the Middletown Town Council, told the News-Journal. "That's the will of the people of Delaware.

"As a delegate, I will support the will of Delaware," he said. "I cannot speak for other individuals, but that's my stance."
