Though the Republican National Convention doesn't start until next week, hundreds of journalists are expected in Cleveland later this week to cover what's usually a dry-as-dust event: The Rules Committee.
Arizona GOP delegate Lori Hack stated in a press release that she informed her chairman of her plans to defy his requirement that delegates from the state vote for Trump on the first ballot.
Cruz said that Trump offered Cruz a speaking slot and that he accepted. Ted Cruz announced last week that he'd been asked to speak on Thursday and had accepted. The recent exposures of Hillary Clinton's private emails prove that presidential candidate's personal documents are not off limits. The public as a whole may not like or trust Clinton, but they really don't like Trump. GOP leaders tapped Harper to fill an alternate spot for the Republican National Convention after another alternate filled another slot vacated by a delegate who suddenly had something better to do than hang out in Cleveland this month.
Following your nominee around, with broom and dustpan in hand, trying to clean up mess after mess, gets old.
If anti-Trump backers cannot get 57 votes in the Rules panel, they can still move ahead with their effort.
"In my opinion, the effort to unbind the delegates, is an effort to unwind the election of the nominee, and I'm not going to support it", Stuart said. With just a week until the convention begins, NBC reports the suggested changes will be debated this week by the Rules Committee.
Even if anti-Trump forces lose at the committee level, Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman, who runs another group opposing the presumptive nominee, said he expected the issue to be decided on the convention floor the following week.
"It's going to be fun and exciting this year", Howard said.
"I think if Sen".
The Republican rank and file, those who live far from Washington D.C. and are largely exhausted of its antics, can't get enough of Donald Trump. Definitive action would take a majority of delegates overall.
The most contentious fight at the platform committee could be about trade because Trump has taken positions against free trade agreements that are more in line with liberal Democrats, said Elaine Kamarck, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who has written a book about presidential primaries and nominations.
Donald Trump's vice presidential reality show rumbles on to Virginia Beach Monday where he is set to appear with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. He is a former state director of Americans for Prosperity, the advocacy group backed by energy executive David Koch. He said federal, state and local authorities have been working together on thorough preparations.
The Rutgers University Center for American Women and Politics reported a year ago that because "Black women have topped all other race and gender groups in turnout in the past two presidential cycles, Democratic candidates and campaigns will rely on their votes to secure their base". The book, "Unbound", has been distributed electronically by the movement backing unbinding.
Rep. Scott DesJarlais of South Pittsburgh, one of the first sitting members of Congress to publicly endorse Trump, said he will be at the convention to lend his support.
"He's been for, he's been against", Burkman said.
"I think it's a - I think for women - and these are hard issues, but I think women have to be able to choose what they - you know, sort of the right of choice, but I think that that's a hard legal decision that - and I think that women are so important in that decision-making process".
But Cleveland has exceeded its goal by bringing in 3,000 reinforcements who will receive training at home plus a short course upon arriving, Tomba said. "Whatever that law is we'll follow it", said Mayor Frank Jackson. The "us" are the Kasich supporters who were heartened when he entered the race for the Republican nomination for president.
