UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST - Email shows Cruz moves to weaken Trump grip on delegates

The Puffy Vampire

From CNN:
Donald Trump won the Arizona Republican presidential primary in a landslide, but Ted Cruz's campaign is trying to break the billionaire developer's hold on state delegates in anticipation of a convention fight this summer -- a move the Trump camp has branded "shenanigans and trickery." 
A Phoenix-based political consulting firm working with the Cruz campaign emailed Republicans in Pima County Monday asking supporters to join the Texas senator's state delegate slate. 
The outreach is part of an organized effort to elect Cruz loyalists to the GOP national convention, where they could vote for him on a second ballot. 
Trump dominated Arizona's March 22 contest, defeating Cruz by 22 points -- a margin of more than 117,000 votes -- and locking up the winner-take-all state's 58 delegates for at least one round of voting at the convention in Cleveland. 
But Cruz, as he has in a number of states, is now seeking to better position himself should the nomination fight go multiple ballots. 
In the email obtained by CNN, Sam Stone from the Cairn Consulting firm contacted Republican precinct committee members in Arizona's 10th legislative district and invited them to join Cruz. 
"National delegates are required to pay their own way to Cleveland, but for those non-Trump supporters who are interested in doing so, the Cruz campaign is organizing a delegate slate at our state party convention to elect people who would be willing to support Sen. Cruz on a second ballot," he wrote. 
"Being part of the slate will dramatically increase your chances of attending the national convention." Stone explained the effort: 
"As you know, the state convention will select our delegates to the national convention. At the convention, these delegates are bound to vote for Donald Trump on the first ballot.  
However, it looks increasingly unlikely that Trump will earn the 1,237 delegates needed to win on the first ballot, and after the first ballot most delegates -- including those from Arizona -- will be free to vote for the candidate of their choice." 
"That means," he continued, "as a delegate, your single vote might decide who our nominee is." Stone told CNN in a phone interview that he was not on the Cruz campaign payroll but had been contacted by its state director, Constantin Querard, and "asked if I'd be willing to do this since I have a lot of ties to Tucson." 
Stone said Querard asked him "to see how many people we could get who would be Cruz supporters on the elected slate of delegates from the LD10 meeting." The Cruz campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the arrangement between Stone and Querard.
I believe this is all legal and according to GOP rules.

That does not mean I am any happier about it.

The GOP has revealed it's arrogance, with Rinse Pubis declaring,

“The party is choosing a nominee. If you don’t like the party, then sit down.”

UPDATE - Epa sez:

"LEADERSHIP APPOINTMENT BY COMMITTEE VOTE…"


It's IRAN'S GUARDIAN COUNCIL - AMERICAN STYLE .. make no mistake.

They pick who we can vote for .. ROUHANI, or ACHMADINEJAD

We should emphasize this over and over and over.

What the GOP and DEMs are doing is insuring the destruction of the entire political process in order to move the election process into a new process which is.. a member committee to elect the next ranks of leadership….very same process as the United Nations has employed - LEADERSHIP APPOINTMENT BY COMMITTEE VOTE

and why our elections have turned into chaos. All of this is to convince the public that elections are not to be done by a people ..and instead must be done by sound judgment of (corrupt) leader members elected by who? Corrupt puppet masters?

The same who developed this system in the UN are the same ones behind the chaos to bring this about in our American political system? WAKE UP AND SAY NO! INSTEAD REMOVE THE CORRUPTION!

Look and see what this same establishment elite have done to control the middle east elections…all the nations they have tumbled and in their place have arisen western establishment owned, designated, and appointed men from the ashes. .. See it all for the fraud it is and has been! The truth shall set you free.”

What one GOP mouthpiece proclaimed when he saw that Trump had lost in Wisconsin:

Trump is getting crushed tonight. Is sanity and political gravity finally returning? At a minimum, the GOP march off the cliff slows.

I'm at a loss for a printable commentary.

What if they called a convention and nobody stayed? I cannot wait to see the massive walk out.

This should be far more entertaining than the 1968 Democratic Convention riots! And it will all happen inside the convention hall!

A look back:

Donald Trump plainly states he is being treated very unfairly. I cannot wait to see who he exposes in Washington to exact his rightful revenge.

AOW,

Just because someone states something does not make it true. Math never lies. The math does not ehibit a "crushing defeat". Gimme a break. Cruz is so far behind Trump it is statistically impossible for him to even pull up even with the man.

"Crushing" will be what happens in New York on April 19th.

The primaries are a sham if it is a committee who decides the candidate.
