Donald Trump And Ted Cruz Agree On Calling On John Kasich To Get Out Of The Race

On Sunday, MSNBC reported that the Donald Trump and Ted Cruz campaigns are trying to block rival John Kasich's name from appearing on the ballot at the Republican National Convention.

On Sunday, Trump also called on Kasich to drop out of the race because he has no chance of winning the nomination. Trump adviser Barry Bennett said both Cruz and Trump "people are fighting hard to make sure their hardcore delegates get on the committee" that determines the rules if there were to be an open convention.

In the past, a candidate was required to get a majority of the delegates in at least eight states to get on the convention ballot.

Former RNC general counsel Ben Ginsberg told MSNBC, "If the campaigns can convince a majority of delegates on the Rules Committee and in the convention, then they can pass an eight-state rule."

Andrew Boucher, Kasich's chief convention strategist said, "We are working to ensure each campaign has a fair representation on the Rules Committee and it reflects the leadership of the Republican Party." In addition, Kasich tweeted a response to Trump that read, "That's not how our republic works. We'll keep fighting until someone reaches a majority of delegates."
