Donald Trump says if he receives fewer delegates from Louisiana than Ted Cruz, in a state whose primary Trump won, he will file a lawsuit.Trump, who won by 2% of the popular vote in Louisiana's March 5th primary, has 18 delegates, the same number as Cruz. At issue is what is going to happen to the 5 delegates won by Marco Rubio, who has since dropped out of the race, and 5 other delegates who have not been allocated since the primary.

State Republican party executive director Jason Dore says they have followed the rules when allocating delegates.  

"Because of how early our primary is, we are required to be a proportional state, thus Trump won 40% of the vote and received 40% of the delegates.", Dore said, adding "...the state party itself can't force any of these delegates to vote in a certain way."  

In all likelihood, the delegates from Rubio as well as the unallocated delegates will remain uncommitted until the Republican National Convention, according to Dore.
