Eliza Collins, Politico

According to analysis from the Media Research Center, over the past four weeks, Trump spent a total of 178 minutes being interviewed by Fox. Ted Cruz spent 120 minutes on the network, while John Kasich spent 84 minutes. When candidate surrogates are added into the mix, Trump’s team spent 397 minutes on air for Fox, Cruz’s crew spent 164 minutes in total and Kasich and his allies spent 105 minutes.

Trump Paid Breitbart Editor for Consulting

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

The revelation that Trump paid a Breitbart editor is really no surprise at all. In fact, it’s a relief. I’d hate to think that they support him so fervently and get nothing at all for it.

Ted Cruz Is Right – America Is At A Point Of Choosing

What’s at stake in this election is not just who will occupy the Oval Office, but what governing principles will be operative in America for the next generation. Cruz’s succinct formulation is that our goals as a government and as a conservative movement should be jobs, freedom, and security. This is about as tight a statement of the goals and credo of the winning 21st century conservative coalition that the English language will allow.

Viguerie: Conservative Leaders Warn GOP Against Rigged Convention, Parachute Candidate

On the day of Donald Trump's huge home-state win, and on the eve of the final Republican National Committee meeting before the GOP convention, an influential group of conservative leaders, including CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie, sent a letter RNC Chairman Reince Priebus warning against a rigged convention or the nomination of a "parachute candidate."

New York Provides a Last Chance at Redemption for the Pollsters

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

All but one of them agree about one key fact: that Donald Trump will get over 50% of the vote in New York today. That one poll that disagrees shows Trump getting 49% of the vote. If Trump falls below 50%, it will be nearly mortal to his chances at the nomination – but it will also be mortal to the remaining tatters of the pollsters’ credibility. This is their last chance really to get it right.

How Trump Can Steal New York Against ‘The Will Of The People’

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Steal? Well, yes. If you use Trump’s definition of stealing, meaning getting delegates that weren’t specifically voted to you by “the will of the people.” In fact, Trump could conceivably take New York with less than 40 percent of identified Republican voters. If any primary in America could be called “rigged,” it’s New York. And you won’t hear a single peep from Trump or his surrogates. Not one single word.

RNC struggles to control fight over Trump, convention rules

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is struggling to control an escalating party debate over what rules should govern a contested Republican convention. It’s an unprecedented situation for Republicans, who for the last week have seen a war of words between their party’s chairman and Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.

5 Reasons Ted Cruz Is The Best Choice For President

Jay Caruso, RedState

Why is Ted Cruz the best choice for President? It’s easy to say, “He’s not Trump!” and that is true. But people want a reason to vote for somebody. There are a number of reasons to vote for Ted Cruz and here are five of them.

Cruz to Trump: Stop ‘whining’ about delegate process

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz told rival Donald Trump to stop “whining” Sunday, following a weeklong tirade from the GOP front-runner in which he accused GOP party leaders of canceling the vote in convention states. Cruz shut Trump out of delegates in Colorado and Wyoming, where the Republican parties there decided to award delegates via county and state conventions instead of by primary or caucus.

Trump’s ‘Democratic Centralism’ Is Stealing The Nomination

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

The GOP should properly reject an outsider who seeks to hijack the party and make it his personal front group. If Trump wants to win the hearts and minds of America, he needs to start by winning the hearts and minds of the party he chose to run under. If he never intended to do that, he has no business demanding the nomination, or anything else, from the GOP.

Report: Trump hit on beauty pageant founder, contestants

Robert King, Washington Examiner

The report on Trump's short-lived role in the American Dream Calendar Girls pin-up competition documents several instances of alleged misogyny by Trump in the early nineties. It is the latest report describing misogyny by the current GOP presidential front-runner.

Will The Supreme Court Elect Donald Trump President Today?

Today the Supreme Court hears the challenge to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign on the issue if illegal immigration, and being the message carrier for America’s forgotten country class voters on that issue has sustained Trump through a series of blunders that would have destroyed any other candidate. Will the Supreme Court rein-in Obama, or will the people have to have the ultimate say at the ballot box?

“Neutrality” is Another Way of Endorsing Trump

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

If the GOP does nothing to unite to stop Trump, he will win, either before the convention or at the convention. And the pundits and elected officials who are sitting on the sidelines now know this – or at least they should. The only reason anyone would refuse to take a stand against Trump at this point – even for Kasich – is because they secretly want Trump to win. If that’s what they want, they should have the courage of their convictions and come out and openly declare it.

Where Trump went wrong

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The first mistake was the cumulative effect of hubris and overconfidence that grew from Trump's early victories. Trump's second mistake, in March, was his failure to consolidate support at the moment of greatest opportunity, when through a series of unfiltered statements and tweets he squandered the sense of inevitability he had begun to build.

Time for Trump to Stop Whining and Mount a Ground Game

We believe, as do Rush Limbaugh and many other conservative commentators, that while the Colorado rules may have been convoluted, Trump wasn’t cheated – the establishment always makes the rules and Trump just plain got out-hustled because he and his people didn’t understand them, and the Cruz team did.
