This is embarrassing.
Instead of fighting for 2016, some of the delegates apparently led by Ken Cuccinelli are moving the goalposts to 2020 and trying to cut a deal for rules for that fight.
They are working under the assumption that they do not have 28 votes, but they need to fight this out.
The press and RNC are already laughing, claiming the anti-Trump effort has been defeated. But there are some quiet delegates in the Rules Committee who are willing to support the effort if it is put to the floor.
The delegates need to stop trying to negotiate their surrender and fight this out.
The deal is a farce. The fight should be fought.
