Walker gave Trump election advice in recent conversation

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, announced on Thursday that he has accepted presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump's invitation to speak at the Republican National Convention later this month. Trump admonished three of them who had been critical of his candidacy and predicted they would lose their Senate races on Election Day, The Washington Post said, citing Republican officials.

"Looking past November, if you've got a president who's a member of the same party that controls Congress, you're going to need elevated levels of cooperation to pass laws and get things done, so I thought it was a correct move for Mr. Trump to begin building that type of relationship with Congress", the Jonesboro Republican said.

He was referring to Trump's comments a year ago when the real estate mogul questioned whether senior Arizona Sen. John McCain, who was captured and spent 5 1/2 years in a Vietnamese prison.

Then, according to the paper, Trump said he has yet to attack Flake hard but threatened to do so - a verbal tactic Trump has used in the past with other potential rivals. Representative Bill Flores said Trump told lawmakers there had been a few times when "I said this, and Paul had to react this way".

"I want to take this opportunity to applaud Secretary Clinton for the very bold initiative she has just brought forth today for the financing of higher education", Sanders said.

Some of those present said that when asked about protecting Article I powers of the U.S. Constitution, Mr. Trump said he wanted to protect all Articles - including an Article XII that doesn't exist.

Arizona has traditionally been a GOP stronghold, but ABC News has rated the state only "Leans Republican" for the 2016 cycle because of the growing number of Hispanics and Trump's comments throughout his campaign on immigration. "I mean, he's not where we want him to be, but he's getting better".

38, could have that honor at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, The New York Post said Thursday. Bernie Sanders, I-V.t, right, speaks as Hillary Clinton listens during the CNN Democratic Presidential Primary Debate at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in NY.

James Wegmann, a spokesman for Sasse, said the meeting did not change the senator's mind.

Donald Trump met with Sen. Still, despite Trump's missteps this week - a tweet using an image perceived as anti-Semitic and his characterization of Saddam Hussein as a "bad guy" but good at killing terrorists - Republicans largely came away from the meeting united against Clinton and heartened by the FBI's criticisms of her judgment, a theme they hope to thread in this campaign.

"Almost as many people were asking for pictures with Ivanka as with Trump", King said, joking that maybe she should run for president someday.

"I think his rhetoric has already had a damaging impact on the party", Ribble said.

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, another of the state's prominent Republicans, said he's not endorsing anybody for president.

During Thursday's hearing, Correll's legal team called North Dakota RNC member Curly Haugland, who has long insisted that under current rules delegates are free to back anyone, as their only expert witness.

No more. This equilibrium has been developing for some time, but yesterday's meetings between Trump and GOP members of the House and the Senate have solidified the political landscape for Republicans.
