Team Romney looks at blocking Trump at convention
Mitt Romney told his advisors to look into how to block GOP front-runner Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, CNN reported Thursday.
“It sounds like the plan is to lock the convention,” a source close to Romney’s inner circle told CNN.
Romney is reportedly looking to prevent Trump from getting the required 1,237 delegates before the convention for the Republican nominee. He also doesn’t think rivals Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz or John Kasich will get the required number of delegates before the convention.
“If the other candidates can find common ground, I believe we can nominate a person who can win the general election and who will represent the values and policies of conservatism,” Romney said.
