National Public Radio interviewed Richard Pacelle, head of the Department of Political Science, about the role of delegates in presidential nominations. This comes as the Republican nominating contest turns into a race for delegates, and not just votes. Pacelle spoke with Robin Young of Here and Now about what a delegate is and the purpose he or she serves. Listen to the story online.
