[QUOTE]Originally posted by raybond: [QB] Companies Bow Out Of Convention And Delegates Try To Change Party Rules To Dump Trump by Casey Quinlan Jun 18, 2016 4:21 pm CREDIT: David J. Phillip, AP Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a rally Friday, June 17, 2016, in The Woodlands, Texas. Even while Donald Trump moves forward as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, establishment figures in both politics and business have stepped away from the candidate. Some delegates are withdrawing support from Trump and major corporations have decided to bow out in their sponsorship or offer less to the convention this year. A small but reportedly increasing coalition of delegates say there may be enough Republicans to unite against Trump and make changes to party rules. If they change those rules, then delegates have the ability to vote for anyone at the convention. They would be allowed to vote for someone besides Trump if it violates their moral or religious beliefs. On Thursday, at least 30 delegates from 15 states participated in a conference call on the subject, the Washington Post reported. The convention’s rules committee meets July 14 and 15. Even if the rules committee supported the proposal, a majority of convention delegates would still have to agree, the Post added. The effort is being led by a Colorado delegate who supported Ted Cruz and is a member of the party rules committee, Kendal Unruh. At a rally in Las Vegas on Saturday, Trump acknowledged the news about delegates organizing against him and said, “So now I hear after beating them fair and square … So how would you like to have someone who wins not only 37 states and no one else was remotely close … sets an all-time record gets 14 million votes over period of nine months and gets 37 states … How would you like to be in a party where Trump wins? Where Trump keeps winning? Where Trump gets the highest ratings in history of television?” Trump commented. [/QB][/QUOTE]
