5:34 pm
could very well become a reality " this comes as conservatives belonging to the "stop trump" movement are huddling in washington today. sources tell c-n-n. there was "absolute consensus" in the closed-door meeting on trying to stop trump from getting the number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination. but that there was a "real division" about launching a third-party challenge if trump ultimately becomes the nominee. trump's team encouraging republicans opposed to trump to rethink their strategy. : "when we get to cleveland, he's going to be our nominee and , you know, some of these guys are gonna have to decide how much damage they are willing to do to the party because they don't like that." the potential for a contested convention is now pushing the g- o-p candidates into effectively waging *two campaigns side-by- side.. still working* to win outright . presidential candidate: "look, if donald might come in and we're neck-in-neck and neither of us are at 1237, then it's a battle for the remaining
5:35 pm
delegates, then it's actually how a convention normally operates." but also scrambling to *prepare their back-up plans if the nominating fight is still unsettled before republicans gather in cleveland this july. presidential candidate: "it is unlikely that anybody is going to achieve enough delegates to avoid a convention." the campaigns making their calibrations from the *sobering reality they face when it comes to the math. candidates need to get to 1237 delegates to clinch the nomination *before the convention. based on the current delegate counts donald trump would need to win a little more than 50 percent of the remaining delegates to reach that mark. ted cruz would need roughly 80 percent. and for john kasich it would be mathematically impossible -- he would need about 108 percent. for the first time since he dropped out of the race for president. republican senator marco rubio was asked today about donald trump's impact on the republican party.
5:36 pm
>> pam: rubio said, he did not know if he will endorse any of the candidates. and that he is not interested in being vice - president. meantime. hillary clinton has picked up another win. after senator bernie sanders said he will not seek a recount of results in missouri's democratic primary, conceding defeat. clinton has a narrow lead in the race and sanders could have sought a recount because the margin was less than one-half of one percent. hillary clinton gets an extra two delegates from missouri for winning the statewide vote. the republican race in missouri remains too close to call between donald trump and ted cruz. one california community is seeing an increase in applicants who want to become u- s citizens so they can participate in the upcoming election. those who want to vote need to start registering now.
