HARRISBURG, Pa. — A solid majority of Pennsylvania Republicans elected as delegates to the GOP's presidential nominating convention in Cleveland say they intend to vote for the candidate who won a thumping primary victory in their state — Donald Trump.
The ballot didn't tell voters which candidate the delegates support, and the 54 people who were elected can vote for whomever they want. It's an unusual system that raised the prospect that the Pennsylvania contingent could be decisive in depriving Trump of the nomination by scattering to his rivals despite his victory in the state.
That appears unlikely.
It's all over but the crying. Cruz and Kasich need to get behind Trump and stop trying to steal the nomination because it won't happen and doesn't look very presidential. They've both alienated themselves from any position in the administration for at least the next eight years.
