Donald Trump needs to win at least 1,100 delegates to avoid chaos at the convention and needs to win 1,237 delegates to win the nomination outright.
Collins and several Republican lawmakers met with the Trump campaign in Washington DC.
Rep. Chris Collins: We’re heading into a lot of big delegates for Donald Trump in the next week and a half… There’s no question we need to get to 1,237. Today we went through the back of the envelope calculation. We came up with a relatively doable 1,265 delegates. And certainly it’s going to come down to California, there’s no question. But as he rolls into California with 1,100 plus delegates I think it’s a done deal.
