Donald Trump again widended his lead against Ted Cruz in this week’s Western Tuesday elections, but that hasn’t stopped Republican party leaders from planning an all out delegate war against Trump during this summer’s Republican convention.
It’s looking more and more as if the road to 1,237 delegates is opening up to Trump. While he may still land shy of the magic number needed to secure the nomination on the first ballot, the billionaire businessman’s team may only have to pull over a few delegates in order for Trump to be crowned the convention winner, and GOP nominee.
The party, then, has its work cut out for them, as the path for their as-yet publicly undisclosed establishment candidate involves much more wheeling and dealing. This isn’t stopping them from trying to defeat Trump, of course. Now, however, the focus has shifted from pooling together non-Trump candidates’ delegates to stealing them from the man himself.
