Washington, March 17: Republican presidential front-runner Dold Trump and his closest rival Ted Cruz warned of dire consequences if the party establishment attempts to have a brokered convention to pick the Republican nominee. “I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots,” Trump said on Wednesday after wins in Republican primaries in four states took his delegate count to 673 as against Cruz’s 411 and Ohio Governor John Kasich’s 143. “I’m representing a tremendous many, many millions of people,” he said on CNN. Kasich’s win in his home state on Tuesday deprived Trump of its 66 delegates and made it hard for the brash billioire to reach the 1,237 delegates he needs to capture the Republican prize without a floor fight at the Cleveland, Ohio, convention in July. With a contested convention likely to choose the party nominee, one of Trump’s supporters said there would be riots if Trump didn’t win the nomition at the convention, though riots themselves “aren’t necessarily a bad thing”.
