'Dump Trump' movement could be near end

Jul 17, 2016

A Michigan Republican delegate who's trying to stop Donald Trump from getting the nomination at the GOP Convention insists the fight isn’t over.

Wendy Day looks at the “Dump Trump” movement in football terms.

And it’s a game now deep in the fourth quarter.   But it’s a game where the Trump faction has scored all the points.

They have the votes and the convention rules committee blocked an effort to let delegates change their vote.

Still Day isn’t throwing in the towel just yet.

“I do think it’s time for a Hail Mary if there’s going to be one,” says Day. “We’ll just have to see what the delegates do.”

Day says she isn’t being pressured by party leaders to give up, but she says she is getting a lot of grief from Trump supporters.
