Somebody used the Colorado GOP Twitter account to tweet #NeverTrump

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — This is not the best way to end a Republican state party convention.

Just moments after Colorado Republican Party Chairman Steve House announced the results of a day-long convention that awarded Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) 34 delegates to the Republican National Convention, the party’s official Twitter account sent out a message suggesting party leaders were pleased with the results.

“We did it. #NeverTrump” the tweet said.

“It’s not us!” a party spokesman shouted as he ran into a room full of reporters covering the convention. The tweet was immediately deleted — but not before reporters spotted it and took screen grabs:

The state party is investigating who might have sent the unauthorized message, which was sent just as the state’s newly elected delegates began meeting in the basement of a hockey arena here for its first organizational meeting.
