GOP leader, House Republicans meet on convention rules

WASHINGTON (AP) – The chairman of the Republican National Committee has told House GOP lawmakers that the rules governing the party’s presidential nominating convention will be made by that gathering’s delegates, not a small group of Republican leaders.

That’s what House Republicans say Reince Priebus told them at a private session Tuesday at GOP national headquarters.

Priebus’ remarks come as Donald Trump, the party’s front-running presidential contender, has complained that GOP rules are rigged against him. Party insiders have also been fighting over whether to alter the convention’s nominating rules.

Some rank-and-file Republicans have expressed a suspicion that party leaders want a fresh presidential candidate to emerge at this July’s convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

The RNC can recommend rules changes, but none take effect unless they’re approved by the 2,472 convention delegates.
