Colorado Will Bring Sheriff to Convention

     (AP) – Colorado Republican Chairman Steve House said Thursday he hopes a sheriff will accompany the state delegation to the GOP nominating convention in Cleveland, after delegates reported getting threatening email messages and calls from Trump supporters.
     House raised the concerns during a closed meeting of state GOP chairmen gathered in Holiday Beach, Florida, for the Republican National Committee meeting going on this week.. House later relayed to The Associated Press just one of the messages he received by phone after Ted Cruz swept Colorado’s delegate selection conventions this month.
     House said a caller told him to “put a gun in your mouth and pull the trigger.” And if he didn’t? “I’ll send someone over to help you.”
     Trump did not compete aggressively for the Colorado delegates, and received none of the state’s 34 pledged delegates. House is among three unpledged delegates from the state, and is publicly neutral.
