A bit of a history lesson today on contested Republican conventions.
Since 1880, there have been 8 of them.
1880: Garfield ends up winning.
1884: James Blaine.
1888 Benjamin Harrison
1916: Charles Hughes
1940: Wendel Wilkie
1948: Thomas Dewey
Here's the interesting factoid for John Kasich and Ted Cruz. For example, 5 of the 8 contests ended up with a winner who wasn't leading in the delegate count going into the conventions.
This is why John Kasich and to a lesser degree Ted Cruz are staying in the race. We haven't done it for almost 70 years, but 2016 could become the ninth GOP contested convention.
