WASHINGTON (AP) — Ted Cruz is saying Donald Trump would trigger a “bloodbath” for Republicans in the general election.

He is trying to persuade a group of Republican donors and Jewish leaders in Las Vegas to support him. Cruz has detoured from next-to-vote New York to speak to the Republican Jewish Coalition, while Trump and John Kasich declined the group’s invitations.

The RJC is funded partly by 2012’s largest political donor, billionaire Sheldon Adelson, whose casino resort hosted the event.

Cruz also draws a sharp contrast with Trump, reminding attendees that the GOP front-runner had recently said he would remain “neutral” between the Palestinians and Israelis. Crus says that as president, he will not be neutral.

With Trump ahead in delegates, Cruz can likely only win in a contested convention this summer.
