The anti-Donald Trump forces who have been trying to gain momentum to block his nomination will send an advance team to Cleveland this week to set up a command center at the Republican National Convention, Politico
The leaders of the movement held a conference call Sunday night for the third time in the past few weeks to coordinate, with the emphasis on attempts to allow delegates to unbind themselves at the convention next month if they feel a moral aversion to the candidate they're supposed to support.

Walker endorsed Trump after he secured the nomination but then changed his mind after the candidate's controversial comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel.
However, as many say the movement has been buoyed by Trump's poor poll results recently against Democrat Hillary Clinton, as well as his dismal fundraising efforts and disarray among the campaign staff, divisions have already appeared in the anti-Trump campaign.
One key disagreement is what happens if they fail to achieve their goal of blocking Trump's nomination. Some have said that if Trump is selected, they will work to help him defeat Clinton, while other leaders of the movement are against making such a pledge of support.
But no matter what momentum they have built, the anti-Trump forces face an uphill battle.
There have been no endorsements by any big-name elected officials or Republican donors that could bring more credibility to the cause, and the Republican National Committee has completely dismissed the anti-Trump movement.
To make matters worse for their cause, a Politico survey of the 112 delegates who will write the rules of the convention and have the first word on efforts to unbind, show that more than half support Trump's nomination.
