ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Sunday that "it's very unfair" that he be required to get 1,237 delegates to win his party's nomination for president, and added that rival candidate Gov. John Kasich "should not be allowed to run." Trump told reporters while campaigning in Wisconsin that, if he hadn't had to compete initially in a field of 17 contenders for the Republican nomination, he would have received far more votes and delgates in earlier primaries. Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus has said that if one candidate gets the support of 1,237 delegates before the Republican convention opens in Cleveland in July, that candidate will win the party's presidential nomination. But if no one wins on the first ballot, the delegates can switch their allegiances, Priebus said. Trump also said he wouldn't have trouble attracting women voters in a contest against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton because "she's got terrible judgment." On Tuesday, Trump backed away from the loyalty pledge he signed in September promising to support the Republican party's eventual nominee and not to run as an independent in his campaign for the White House.
