The anti-Trump forces have unleashed a back-up plan in case their efforts to deny Donald Trump the Republican nomination fail: Give delegates in Cleveland the power to chose his vice president.
It's a last-ditch effort, with the thought being if they can't get rid of Trump, then they can force at least one major concession.
The proposal is being distributed by the executive director of the group "Free the Delegates," Regina Thomson, and it would change "rule 40," a party bylaw that guides how delegates choose the nomination of both the president and vice president.
The anti-Trump rebels' proposals to alter rule 40 would give delegates the power to have a say in Trump's running mate.
"It would make it so that it would be more clear and easier for the convention body to assert itself in making the nomination," said a delegate on the rules committee sympathetic to the anti-Trump effort.
