Randy Evans, a Republican National Committee member, just announced that if conservative businessman Donald J. Trump gets 1,100 delegates, he will secure the Republican nomination… Even if he’s short of the 1,237 required for a simple majority!

“If Donald Trump exceeds 1,100 votes, he will become the nominee even though he may not have 1,237.”
