Donald Trump's campaign launched a series of regular meetings with congressional supporters Thursday in a bid to raise his stature in Washington and secure enough support to win the Republican presidential nomination.Trump senior adviser Ed Brookover met near Capitol Hill with roughly a half dozen U.S. lawmakers who have endorsed Trump to detail how the Republican front-runner will win the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination ahead of the party's July 18-21 convention.The informational meeting, which Trump did not attend, included lawmakers from states such as New York and Pennsylvania, which hold key nominating contests in coming weeks. All the Colorado delegates went to U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who is trying to stop Trump from gaining the 1,237-delegate majority needed to win the nomination on the first ballot at the convention in Cleveland in July.U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan met with reporters as the Trump meeting was under way.After the fundraiser, Trump and Republican rivals Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich were to appear at the New York Republican Gala in Manhattan.
