RNC Rules Committee Member: Trump Could Win Nomination If He Exceeds 1,100 Delegates


Member of the Georgia Republican party, former Newt Gingrich backer, and RNC rules committee member Randy Evans told MSNBC's Morning Joe Wednesday morning that Donald Trump could win the GOP nomination even if he comes short of 1,237 delegates.

"If Donald Trump exceeds 1,100 votes, he will become the nominee even though he may not have 1,237," Evans said.

"If he gets less than 1,000 delegates, then I think we're looking at a contested convention that could go on for many, many days," Evans said.

"And then in the middle, there's that grey area between 1,000 and 1,100, and that's where the unbound delegates or the delegates that have been released by other candidates come into play to see if there are enough of those to get either Cruz or Trump over the finish line," he concluded.
