Analysts don't give them much of a chance of succeeding, but dissatisfied Republicans looking to deny Donald Trump the party's presidential nomination have one more chance Thursday, as the Republican National Convention's Rules Committee opens its meetings in Cleveland, Ohio.

Some of those opposed to Trump are proposing a rules change to free up convention delegates from the requirement they vote for Trump along the lines of the caucuses and the primaries in their states.

One of the Massachusetts representatives on the Rules Committee is Republican Janet Fogarty, of Scituate. She joined Morning Edition to discuss the pressure she's been receiving.
