“If they thought they were going to have the nice, unified kumbaya show, they just completely guaranteed they’re not going to have it,” said Kendal Unruh, a GOP delegate from Colorado who led an anti-Trump group…
So what can upset delegates do to cause chaos? First, they can try to collect enough signatures to introduce a “minority report” to the full convention. Doing so requires getting at least 28 signatures from members of the convention rules committee. Unruh said Friday that she is unlikely to seek the signatures for her own minority report, since all of her ideas failed.
But other delegates who sought to change the party rules by reverting back to “closed” Republican-only primaries and caucuses have not ruled out introducing their plan to the convention. Gay rights activists who sat on the party platform committee have also discussed introducing a resolution that would soften the GOP’s official opposition to same-sex marriage.
Angry delegates might also attempt to be recognized to officially register opposition to Trump or to force an hours-long roll call of the states, which would upend a speakers schedule aimed at prime-time television coverage.
