Chaos Erupts at GOP Convention After ‘Never Trump’ Movement Almost Forces Key Vote
ABC – The floor of the Republican National Convention erupted into chaos Monday amid an attempt by never-Trump forces to change the event’s rules. The bid was defeated, thwarting the effort to block the real estate mogul’s path to the nomination.
Delegates engaged in dueling chants of “Roll call vote” and “USA” on the floor after Rep. Steve Womack of Arkansas, the presiding chairman, forced a voice vote and judged that those who favored the existing rules prevailed. Colorado’s delegation walked off of the floor in protest amid the chaos.
