Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus on Monday seemed to respond to Donald Trump’s claims that the primary process is rigged, saying the rules “haven’t changed” and there’s “nothing mysterious.”

“There was no voting. I didn’t go out there to make a speech or anything, there’s no voting,” Trump said Monday on Fox News following Texas. Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]’s win in Colorado.

The New York real estate developer added that “the people out there are going crazy, in the Denver area and Colorado itself, and they’re going absolutely crazy because they weren’t given a vote. This was given by politicians — it’s a crooked deal.”

Back in August of 2015, the Colorado state party decided to choose unbound delegates at precinct and state conventions instead of a typical primary or caucus.

Priebus tweeted out Monday night, that “the rules were set last year. Nothing mysterious –nothing new. The rules have not changed. The rules are the same. Nothing different.”
