WaPo: Cruz Likely to Block Trump on a Second Ballot at the GOP Convention

From Ed O’Keefe writing at the Washington Post:

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is close to ensuring that Donald Trump cannot win the GOP nomination on a second ballot at the party’s July convention in Cleveland, scooping up scores of delegates who have pledged to vote for him instead of the front-runner if given the chance.
