CLEVELAND – A group of Donald Trump opponents, Delegates Unbound, said they had collected enough signatures to force a roll call vote here at the Republican National Convention on whether to replace Trump as Republican nominee. The group said they would deliver the signatures to the Republican National Committee Convention Secretary.
Collecting signatures was a necessary response to the Rules Committee vote Friday shepherded by RNC leaders that would have unbound delegates from their first ballot obligations and allow them to vote their conscience.
“Despite every obstacle thrown in our way, the movement of all the stakeholders involved in this effort have gained a majority of the delegates in 10 states,” said M. Dane Waters co-founder of Delegates Unbound. “Now we take this fight to the floor.”
