>> pam:former presidential candidate mitt romney threw his support to texas senator ted cruz as the best choice for the republican nomination. romney posted the announcement
8:41 pm
on facebook. he said cruz is the only candidate who can take enough votes away from trump to prevent his nomination. political analysts say california may hold the key to stopping the candidate who has aleienated many members of his own party. "he is the most flawed candidate the republican party could put up as its standard bearer." the possible loss not only of the white house but control of congress has added urgency to the stop=trump movement. former presidential candidate hopefully there is still time to prevent a trump nomination. former bitter rivals now joining forces. south carolina: "i'm going to be
8:42 pm
doing a fundraiser with and for senator cruz." trump now has 683 delegates, more than half of the 12=hundred 37 votes need to secure the nomination. most predictions say he will have more than 1=thousand delegates by the california primary on june seventh. the state's 172 delegates are awarded winner-take-all by congressional district. if trump beats ted cruz consistently across the state, even if it's by just a few points, he would win a huge windfall of delegates and very likely clinch the nomination. if not. get ready for a contentious convention in cleveland in july. if trump is short of the delegates he needs to clinch the nomination - a fight could breaks out among the three contenders. if, in vote after vote, no one can seal the deal, some new arrival could emerge from nowhere to become the nominee. "sure, it absolutely can happen." "anybody could be brought in at that point." trump himself has warned of riots if he is denied the nominaton. his campaign manager accused party leaders of plotting to deny the will of the people. i want to tell you, if that's the path they want to go down, there will be consequences for that kind of thinking.
