Anti-Donald Trump Forces See Convention Coup as Within Reach

… Backing of 28 Rules Committee members would allow a full vote on unbinding delegates …

“Months after Donald Trump appeared to seal the Republican nomination for president, anti-Trump forces still have one last chance to force a vote on the party’s convention floor that would throw open the GOP contest again. It’s a long shot, but by some counts they are remarkably close to getting past the first hurdle next week in Cleveland. Mr. Trump’s intraparty foes, led by a group of rogue delegates, are waging an intense behind-the-scenes effort to push the Republican National Convention’s Rules Committee for a vote on freeing delegates to back whom they wish, rather than being bound to Mr. Trump……….

…. The anti-Trump camp needs the backing of 28, or one-quarter, of the 112 Convention Rules Committee members, in order to place the issue before the full convention. A Wall Street Journal survey suggests it could be close. Internal surveys of the Rules Committee conducted by RNC member Randy Evans of Georgia, who is whipping votes trying to help Mr. Trump fend off the insurrection, found at least 18 committee members open to voting to unbind. The Trump campaign’s count shows about 15 leaning toward the so-called conscience clause, according to people familiar with the campaign………..


This seems unlikely but is a sign off the significant resistance to Trump being the GOP nominee for president…… However this political season the unbelievable became common place...........So as some say....

It ain't over until its over........
