43 delegates for Washington Republicans? Here's the explanation

Washington has 43 delegates at stake in the March 3 Republican Party caucuses. That’s 13 more than Michigan and 14 more than Arizona, both of whom vote on Tuesday. Washington’s total is the second-highest of the primary season so far.

Many times over the past two months people have raised the question of how does the Republican Party assign delegates to specific states as part of the presidential nomination process?  I am happy to say I have some help this morning.
