A source with the Free the Delegates movmeent, a group that is attempting to stop Trump by advocating that delegates be able to vote their conscience at the convention instead of remaining bound, described the proposal as the “arranged marriage option.”
“It’s a counterweight to Trump,” the source said. “It’s the grassroots saying if you’re going to do this, you’re going to do it with our pick.”…
One of the main arguments against attempts to block Trump at the convention has been that the voters have spoken; Trump won the primary fair and square.
But, the Rules Committee member pointed out, “obviously, that doesn’t apply to the vice presidential nomination.”
“We don’t know who Trump would pick for that position but I think we have a right to have a say on that,” the member said.
