WASHINGTON — After another embarrassing primary loss and growing ridicule from fellow Republicans, John Kasich’s top campaign advisers told a group of Washington lobbyists and donors Wednesday the Ohio governor still could snag the GOP nomination at a contested convention in July.
Bob Rusbuldt, an insurance industry lobbyist and major Kasich supporter, said the message of the closed-door meeting was twofold: first, no candidate will go into the Republican National Convention in July with a majority of the delegates; and second, “anything can happen” at a contested convention…
But another attendee, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., said the room was filled with Kasich devotees. “This is a group that (is) … on board,” he said. …
Kasich has argued if no one clinches the nomination in the first round of voting, delegates will flock to his candidacy because he is the strongest Republican candidate in a general election.

Because whether Trump or Cruz can win against the Democrats in November, they cannot. Not without our support. And they know it.
Pay very close attention, Trumpers and Cruzers.
We are in this together against an Establishment run amok, and at some point conservatives and the Republican base – Trump supporters and Cruz supporters – must come together and unite to defeat them.
Our survival as a republic literally depends on it.
Or just call me naive…
