The Denver Channel is reporting that Sen. Ted Cruz plans to attend the Colorado GOP state assembly on April 9 and that Ohio Gov. John Kasich and businessman Donald Trump are considering it.

The convention will be held at the Broadmoor World Arena, and will test state and local security efforts.

After reported violence and protests at Trump rallies, it's a good thing the El Paso County Sheriff's office recently supplied their deputies with riot gear, eh?

But Trump might back out, because El Paso County delegates voted overwhelmingly (71 percent) for Cruz in a straw poll on Saturday, and the county holds more than 10 percent of the state's delegates.

So he might want to rethink coming here and just "write off" Colorado, as one political insider said.
