Anti-Trump movement isn't over, says Washington delegate

Jul 18, 2016

David Hyde speaks to Braedon Wilkerson, a Washington state delegate from Olympia at the Republican National Convention.   

A push by anti-Trump delegates to change the rules of the Republican National Convention failed Monday. Delegates wanted to be free to vote for any candidate in Cleveland. 

But party rules say they have to vote for the winner of their state’s primaries or caucuses and that's how it will stay.

The majority of Washington state’s delegates backed the rule change, including Wilkerson. He said the failure to change the rules was disappointing, but it doesn’t mean the end to the anti-Trump movement.
