WASHINGTON (AP) — Sarah Palin says voters won’t stand for it if Republican power brokers try to take the presidential nomination away from Donald Trump or Ted Cruz at the GOP convention this summer.
The 2008 vice presidential nominee told The Associated Press on Thursday that GOP voters have the right to decide the party’s nominee and will rebel if House Speaker Paul Ryan or some other “white knight” is chosen at a contested convention. She says voters know better than to be fooled by party leaders.
Palin has endorsed Trump and tells the AP that she is confident he will win the GOP nomination. She also says that she can support Cruz if he emerges as the nominee.
She says Trump is “reasonable and full of common sense.”
