Sullivan said Rubio still thinks it's possible to secure the delegates needed to sew up the nomination before the convention.
 
He also said the campaign is ready for a scenario in which none of the candidates have won the delegates needed before the convention. Sullivan explained details of how a brokered convention would work.
 
Attendees told CNN that Sullivan laid out both paths.
 
"One is somebody — Trump or Rubio — wins enough primaries to sew up the nomination in advance of the convention," one attendee said. "The other is that nobody does, and the two candidates go to the convention."
