    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Ted Cruz's campaign manager, Jeff Roe, comments on what Trump can do at the Republican Convention to unite the party: Give Ted Cruz a prominent role. JEFF ROE: I would be remiss if I didn't point out that without data, without online fund raising, they kicked my butt anyway. That's on top of us raising $93 million, which was a record (at the time) for Republican primaries, getting eight million votes. Mr. Trump has a way to control the news cycle. I believe they will be able to put it together, but they have to get going now. The...

    Donald Trump's campaign believes it has the support of enough delegates to prevent a convention coup next month in Cleveland, and is building an expansive team to make sure of it. The campaign's whip team, as first reported by Politico and outlined in interviews with multiple Trump strategists involved in the effort, includes 150 paid staffers and volunteers that will act as a direct line to delegates at the Republican National Convention. Trump's team insists it's not a direct response to the growing grassroots effort to change the convention rules to make it easier to oust Trump as the party's...

    A federal judge on Thursday struck down rules set for protesters at next month’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Ohio’s branch of the American Civil Liberties Union brought the suit last week against the city of Cleveland, arguing that restrictions on protesters within the “event zone” around Quicken Loans Arena are unconstitutional. Those restrictions would ban certain items, including large backpacks, tape and string, and limit where within the 3.5 square mile zone demonstrators can speak and hold a parade.

U.S. District Court Judge James Gwin ruled the city’s establishment of a large zone around the July convention site within which protesters’ ability to demonstrate would be strictly limited contravened the Constitution’s guarantees of the freedom of speech and assembly. “Under the First Amendment, I do find that the city hasn't sufficiently, narrowly...

    A time-lapse video recorded by convention organizers shows the first 36 hours of the arena's transformation — from a few hours after Game 6 ended, to the start of construction. About 250 people will work inside the Q each day to ready the arena for the RNC. The Republican Party typically needs six to eight weeks to convert a space into the RNC convention floor. This year, the GOP only has four weeks — but officials have said they are confident the Q will be ready in time for the convention.

The suit, filed this week on behalf of the city's homeless, objects to the 8.5-square-kilometer "event zone," a secondary security area outside the stricter security perimeter that will circle the convention site, Quicken Loans Arena. The lawsuit contends that security restrictions and rules regarding public demonstrations in the event zone are "arbitrary, unnecessary and unjustifiable."

Others include the League of Women Voters; a group that aids immigrants; and Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, which is known for picketing at funerals using anti-gay chants and signs because it believes God is punishing the U.S. and its soldiers for defending a nation that tolerates homosexuality. Peace and anti-racism groups also got permits. Various groups are seeking permits to demonstrate, march or hold events at nearby...

    When Donald Trump collected a few unbound delegates last week, surpassing the 1,237 needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president, expectations that the national convention could be the most dramatic in modern times evaporated. “Now, it will be the most entertaining,” said Randy Evans, a party-wise man from Georgia, with a nod to the reality TV star’s promise to “put some show biz” into the July convention in Cleveland. But there remains an important, unscripted drama yet to unfold in the tempestuous relationship between Trump and his chief rival, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Although Trump will arrive...

Police officials have told officers that a host of logistical issues, including an inability to attach the cameras to police riot gear, means officers will not be able to wear the devices. The department says officers will use other methods to record police interactions with protesters and the public during the convention.

Brian Kirby, who runs Shelf Life Clothing Co., told The Associated Press that more than 2,000 shirts have been sold since Jones sported one on Thursday while co-hosting the network's "Mike & Mike" show.

    Cleveland, we have a problem. A 'Yuuge' problem! 700 angry truckers (and growing) are watching the political developments in the US very closely and are preparing to act. The leader of the group, who asked to be unnamed, warned "If the leaders of the Republican party plan on defying the will of the voters, we feel that that's an act of treason. And I can promise you that they will see an epic traffic jam in Cleveland." He continued, "And guess what, that'll be the least of their worries!" The spox [spokesperson] was referring to the brokered convetion the GoPe's...

    I’ve heard a lot of predictions about the outcome of the GOP primary this week, but to say that there’s some sort of consensus forming would be a bit of an exaggeration to put it mildly. Echoing the sentiments of some of the guests on the cable news morning shows, Lawnewz said that Trump still wins the whole thing once he gets to wrangle for a few missing delegates coming into Cleveland. At the same time, Ted Cruz backer Scott Walker said that the Texas Senator is now set up to take it on the second ballot. And of course...

    So, you want to be a delegate to the Republican National Convention? You could have a rare opportunity to help make history, if none of the Republican presidential candidates reaches the target 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination on the first ballot. And maybe — just maybe — billionaire businessman Donald Trump will take you for a spin on Trump Force One. Now, if you're looking to jump on the bandwagon today, the bad news is it's probably too late. Most state parties haven't picked their delegates yet, but in general, they're looking for people who have demonstrated loyalty...

    The dangerous propaganda of Trump and his allies continues, drawing the American public ever more closely to a taste of Trump’s notions of “democracy” and “winning.” Some have stated that Trump is willing to do anything to get his way. This is arguably possible and that is the risk we are facing. Trump has been promising that riots will occur if he does not get the nomination. Arguably he is not warning but signaling to his supporters what he expects of them. Trump stated in an interview with the New York Times that even if he does not reach the...
