MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Donald Trump is reaching out to some conservative critics who helped doom his hopes in Wisconsin, asking them to reconsider backing him this fall.

Talk radio host Charlie Sykes, part of the #NeverTrump movement, said Friday he got a handwritten note from Trump.

The note is actually a scrawl of black marker across a New York Times article about social conservatives warming to Trump’s candidacy. It says, “I hope you can change your mind - look forward to doing your show.” It concludes with, “I will win!”

The two had a contentious interview ahead of Wisconsin’s primary, won by Ted Cruz.

Sykes says Trump’s business conglomerate contacted him Wednesday for his address so Trump could send him a note. Trump’s organization didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking confirmation.
