Yep, that is occuring in real time right now. Not sure what this leads to…I think Trump is headed for the nomination, but I don’t think he can beat Hillary. Hillary having a bit of a battle in Indiana…the contested election may pivot toward the dems!
The RNC must have pushed Cruz hard. They seemed to have softened on Trump enough, and/or realized the bloodbath that a contested convention would cause, that letting Trump have the nomination is ultimately worth it.
The GOP knows that they will lose in November, and they want Trump to own it completely, and they want to keep the Republican Party (even if in name only) intact. Good luck with that.
