The behind-the-scenes battle for the Republican nomination

As the primaries progress and neither Donald Trump nor Ted Cruz earn the 1237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination, a second battle is emerging to win over delegates who will switch sides in a contested convention.

About the video...

This video is part of a larger explainer series titled "The Buzz with Buzz." The purpose of this video was to explain, in a visually interesting way, how a contested convention could work. This video was produced and published in April, when the national discourse was busy discussing how Ted Cruz could potentially supplant Donald Trump if Trump had not reached the electoral threshhold by the convention in July.
