CLEVELAND -- Republicans responsible for setting the party's presidential nomination rules on Thursday overwhelmingly rejected attempts to formally unbind delegates to next week's convention, effectively ending any serious attempt to rob Donald Trump of the GOP presidential nomination.
A vote came quickly Thursday night as part of a day-long marathon session of the Republican National Convention's rules committee, which sets the rules of the meetings and how the party will pick its nominee in 2020.
The rejection of the "unbinding" proposal was so overwhelming that committee leaders opted not to record the tally. Trump supporters on the committee quickly exercised procedural tactics to effectively kill any attempt to revive the issue -- and to codify that delegates are indeed bound to vote for the results of state caucuses and primaries...

Hey, hey, hey, good-bye.
NOW will they finally help stop Hillary from stealing the country before destroying it?
It is authoritative.
This nonsense could have all been stopped much earlier by one man. Ted Cruz ,the petulant child, continues to let his ego rule hie mind
Choke on that, cuckservatives!!!!
If you listen, you can hear the wailing over at redstate.com. It’s a lovely song Ned.
#NeverTrumpers revolt is crushed.
Trump will win the nomination on the first ballot next week.
MSM and Democrats were hoping for a divided GOP with bitter floor fights and drama but they’re deeply disappointed.
This is a better thread because it has a national Media link. The other one from your post does not.
Bill Kristol is deeply saddened.
They weren’t all Cruzers.
They used it as an excuse to claim to be true conservatives.
Unless these bimbo bloggers live a lifestyle like Rick Santorum, I find it hard to believe they claim to be more pro-life and offended by Trump.
Every other article they are pandering to Muzzies & homos.
I’m totally in favor of guerrilla tactics if you don’t have a clear winner.
We have a clear winner. Its not even close. So with that in mind, this stuff is embarrassingly stupid. Someone is getting Clinton Campaign cash under the table.
For the past two decades the rules committee has been far more conservative than the jokes we have elected. The platform is far more conservative than the politicians we have sent to D.C.
Glad they got this right and the media will have to find something else to hype. Tired of it.
WaPo may be left leaning but it does have national recognition as MSM. Better source than some personal blogger.

For the record, I will be voting for Gary Johnson in November. I suspect a lot of people will. Have a good night, all!
0.000000000001% of blacks are voting for Johnson & 2% of 20 year old white guys are voting Gary Johnson. His polls are BS. Trump is dominant.
That had jack sh!t to do with his mind, and everything to do with two million dollars every three years coming from Sachs Goldman.
Your post number #2.
Liz Mair is voting for a liberal?
Good luck with it.
I want these people exposed and removed from O U R party. This is the party of Trump. There is no mercy on them . Publish their low life names, phone numbers. No mercy.
