Ted Cruz said that “if there were a contested Republican convention, an obscure rule adopted at the 2012 GOP convention would block John Kasich from competing in a floor fight for the GOP presidential nomination,” Politico reports.
“The rule, drafted and imposed by forces loyal to Mitt Romney, requires that any candidate eligible for the nomination win a majority of delegates from at least eight states or U.S. territories. Kasich is unlikely to approach that threshold ahead of the convention.”
Said Cruz “It’s against the rules for Kasich to be on the ballot. Only two candidates meet that threshold.”
