Donald Trump supporters in Ohio are fighting their state party’s attempts to sandbag Trump.
Trump tweeted Monday about a poll showing him leading Hillary Clinton 48 to 44 in Ohio. A Trump win in Ohio would be massively significant in the history of the Republican Civil War, because it would prove that Trump supporters are capable of carrying a swing state in the general election with no help from the party establishment.
Ohio party chairman Matt Borges, a Republican National Committee chairman aspirant who is described as John Kasich’s consigliere, has led the effort to betray Trump.
“Mr. Borges stayed with [the Kasich presidential effort] to the end,” Trump-supporting state party Central Committee member Ann Becker told Breitbart News. “I think Matt was hoping there would be something done on the floor of the convention” to nominate Kasich over Trump.
