SPOKANE, Wash. -

Republican delegates from Washington state were among anti-Donald Trump forces who lost a fight to demand a state-by-state roll call vote at the opening of the Republican national convention in Cleveland.
    
The 44 members of the Washington delegation are overwhelmingly made up of supporters of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and they pushed hard to hold a state-by-state roll call on whether to change the party's rules in ways that would take power from GOP leaders. That bid included an effort to let delegates back any candidate they want.
    
Jennifer Fetters, a Washington state delegate who supports Cruz, tweeted Monday that the Dump Trump movement remains alive.


    
But Washington state GOP delegate Joel Mattila, a Trump supporter, was critical of that effort. He called it shameful.
