Trump Convention Manager: ‘There’s Not Going to Be a Second Ballot’

Following Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s runaway victory in the New York State GOP presidential primary on Tuesday, Trump convention manager Paul Manafort appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” to discuss the win and what will happen with the campaign going forward.

Manafort said of the discussions about Trump’s opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) courting delegates for a possible second ballot at the Republican National Convention in July were not a concern because he said he felt Trump would hit the 1,237 delegate threshold by “early June.”

“There’s not going to be a second ballot,” Manafort said. “It’s not going to be an issue.”

“We have several ways to get to 1,237 by early June,” he added. “And today was a giant step forward. We think we’re going to have another great week next week. But more importantly what you saw – you saw record turnout today in New York. And a record turnout in a primary that everyone knew Donald Trump was going to win.”
