'Never Trump' Movement Crushed in GOP Rules Hearing

'Never Trump' Movement Crushed in GOP Rules Hearing

Thursday, 14 July 2016 10:29 PM EDT

Republicans writing the rules governing the Republican National Convention rejected a proposal put forth by “Never Trump” Republicans to unbind delegates.

But it's not the end of  the "Never Trump" movement, The Hill reported Thursday night.

Offered by Colorado delegate Kendal Unruh, the amendment would have freed delegates from the results of the primaries and caucuses so that they could revolt against Trump on the convention floor.

The GOP Rules Committee ratified a different rule that stated delegates must remain bound to the results of the primaries and caucuses.

A strong majority of the 112-member Rules Committee repeatedly voted against the “Never Trump” movement in a big win for presumptive nominee Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee.

Now the Never Trumpers will look to get 28 signatures from colleagues on the Rules Committee to ensure the Never Trump contingent gets a vote before the nearly 2,500 delegates on national television Monday when the convention kicks off.
