The last, dying faction of the Never-Trump-Why-Not-Hillary movement got stampeded on as they tried one last coup last night on the floor of the Republican Convention in Cleveland.

Delegates chant during rules adoption in the Quicken Loans Arena on the first day of the 2016 Republican national convention

Multiple state delegations walked off the floor after the rules were passed twice by voice vote and anti-Trump delegates protested on the floor.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee stood up for the Never Trump rebels, saying that it was "unprecedented" that the convention chairman walked off the stage rather than allow a roll call vote on the rules.

"A roll call vote is our right as delegates," said Lee, as protesters chanted "roll call vote!"

"Those who are calling for unity need to keep that in mind – if they want unity, treat us respectfully as delegates," Lee said.
