Donald Trump keeps hammering away at Republican insiders even as campaign aides are gingerly courting those same officials.Cruz's strategy is to force a contested convention by denying Trump the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination outright on the first ballot at the convention.Bu earlier in the week, at a Florida resort where Republican officials gathered to discuss the presidential nominating process, Trump campaign aide Paul Manafort brushed off the idea that Trump's rhetoric was making it more difficult to build bridges with party leaders.In a private meeting Thursday with Republican officials, Manafort tried to assure them that Trump was on their side and prepared to fundraise for the party.Some suggested that if Trump were leading the delegate race going into the convention only to have someone else nominated, it would make them consider staying home in November instead of voting for the Republican nominee.
