Donald Trump may have written a check even he cannot cash.

During a town hall on CNN Tuesday the Republican candidate said he no longer stands by his loyalty pledge to support the GOP nominee if it is not him and that declaration could cost his the 50 delegates he won in South Carolina.

Now anti-Trump people are conspiring to take away the delegates he won in the Feb. 20 primary, according to TIME. And with each delegate increasingly valuable heading into a potentially contested convention it could be catastrophic for Trump.

The S.C. Republican Party would have strong standing to strip the delegates as it requires all candidates to abide by the pledge and has for decades.

“Breaking South Carolina’s presidential-primary-ballot pledge raises some unanswered legal questions that no one person can answer,” South Carolina Republican Party chairman Matt Moore told TIME. “However, a court or national convention Committee on Contests could resolve them. It could put delegates in jeopardy.”
