Free the Delegates: Stop Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention

June 21, 2016

A faction of Republicans is pinning a last-ditch effort to stop Donald Trump on a long-shot rules change at the national convention. The goal is passing a rule at the Republican National Convention in July that would free delegates to vote their "conscience," negating any binding put in place by states' primaries.

The movement is called Free the Delegates. The group is led by delegates seeking to block Trump at the GOP convention next month in Cleveland by changing party rules so that they can vote however they want — instead of in line with the results of state caucuses and primaries. It is quickly emerging as the most organized effort to stop Trump and coincides with his declining poll numbers and his severe lack of fundraising. 

Ryan Miner, the host of A Miner Detail, will interview Regina Thomson, the co-founder of the Free the Delegates movement on Tuesday, June 21 at 9:00 p.m.
