Republican panel leaves anti-Trump move gasping for breath

The rest is split between three special party accounts ― convention, building and legal ― that were created by the Republican-controlled Congress in the 2014 omnibus budget bill. "This time, the convention matters".

Gesicki was already in rout to Cleveland Friday morning and said he thinks the convention will be historic.

That quirk in the rules has led to last-ditch efforts to convince "unbound" delegates to abandon Trump, according to Morelli and Villano, both enthusiastic Trump backers who publicly campaigned for the billionaire businessman from NY. The Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee with the Democratic National Committee, raised $81.6 million and transferred $20.7 million to Clinton's campaign account.

Mott said he will not vote for Trump in November.

Much like Trump's campaign, this convention will be anything but predictable, as conventions usually are. Trump ran one of the most unconventional primary campaigns the nation has ever seen, and to everyone's surprise, it worked.

He said clients are also requesting additional surveillance equipment to monitor events from every angle.

More than a couple dozen of Republican U.S. Senators are skipping the convention, including both U.S. Senators from Arizona. Sen.

Oklahoma Republicans backed Texas Sen.

Democrats gather later this month in Philadelphia, while Republicans meet next week in Cleveland.

While the major parties' political conventions are an anointing of sorts for presidential nominees, this year's GOP convention, like this year's election, departs from the norm, with celebrities and Trump's family replacing the more typical GOP politicians as speakers. There are reports that chaos is expected.
