From Talking Points Memo:
CLEVELAND – Anti-Trump delegates trying to cause the GOP nominee embarrassment on the floor of the convention in Cleveland lost in what may have been their last best chance make a symbolic stand against Donald Trump.
Trump foes said they had the signatures of a majority of the delegates from nine delegations to force a roll call vote on the convention’s rules.
However, when it became time to approve the rules, the officials presiding said that the three of those delegations had withdrawn their petition, and the rules were approved in a voice vote.
The scene on the floor was chaotic when the vote on the convention’s rules was called. The anti-Trump delegates, many of them clustered around the Virginia delegation, began chanting “Dump Trump,” only to be met by chants of “USA, USA.”
