Interesting things did happen!
So I've been following the convention for the past couple days. Yesterday, when they went to vote on the rules for the convention, the voice vote was indiscernible. They were all chanting "roll call!" They had to do the vote a second time, and to me it was still indiscernible, but the chair overruled them and passed it anyway. Then today, during the roll call of states, there were several states that had bound deligates, (which is equivalent to super deligates in my opinion!) that tried to cast votes for other candidates. Alaska tried this, DC tried this, and so did Utah, which tried to cast all 40 of it's deligates bound for Trump to Ted Cruz. It didn't work though, in each situation where the deligates were bound, they all got awarded to Trump.
