To the best of my understanding, the rules for winning delegates, for both the Democratic and Republican conventions, are passed by their national committees in advance of the state primaries [“Cruz, Trump having ‘a fit,’ ” News, April 19].

It’s up to the candidate and his or her advisers to follow the rules in the quest to secure these delegates. Calling each other names and crying foul do not solve anything.
