ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called on supporters Sunday to come to Cleveland when the Republican National Convention is held to pick the party's presidential nominee. Republican rival Senator Ted Cruz has managed to win more delegates than Trump in some states where Trump actually won more votes. Trump told supporters gathered in Hagerstown, Maryland that, "We're going to have some people that are going to be very, very angry" if the convention nominates one of his rivals as the party's nominee for president. Trump repeated his criticism of the nominating rules on Sunday, called them "a rigged system." Those descriptions have been jarring to party officials and could undermine efforts to unify the party. However, the prevailing opinion among Republican National Committee members was that Trump is simply energizing his anti-establishment supporters, a point hammered home by Trump's campaign manager, who privately told party leaders Trump is "projecting an image" and will transition to a more serious demeanor.
