Elephant in the Room
The GOP looks at the possibility of a contested Republican convention.
As this summer’s Republican Convention in Cleveland looms, GOP party leaders are looking at the chance that they may not have an outright winner beforehand, which would mean a contested convention. If none of the primary candidates win the necessary 1237 delegates beforehand, the RNC could choose anyone at their convention. The current leader in delegates, Donald Trump, sees the RNC’s rules as unfair. Senate Majority leader Paul Ryan could possibly be named the GOP candidate, but Ryan had said he is uninterested, as he has unfinished business n Congress.
The Republican National Convention is July 18-21.
