Donald Trump promised to put on a show here this week with lots of "winners" as the headliners. Some people saw their stock rise after a wild week in Cleveland, but others found themselves caught in the storm.

Any other path starts to get really complicated. So a Republican who loses Ohio loses the presidency.
