Cruz's allies have already outmaneuvered Trump's campaign in Georgia by winning a majority of the 42 delegates up for grabs at district conventions in April. But that was in the throes of the primary, when both Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich were still in the race. Both abandoned the contest after a string of defeats, and the billionaire last month clinched the 1,237 delegates he needs to lock up the nomination.
Still, Cruz's forces have fought on in other states, aiming to secure spots on committees that decide the convention rules and party platform that could help a potential Cruz run in 2020 by, say, restricting Republican primaries to only registered GOP voters. (Trump's campaign relied on independents and newcomers to lock up the nomination.)
