Will the RNC run 3 candidates Trump, Cruz & Kasich?

In 1836, the Whigs ran 4 candidates against the Democrats. The goal in 2016 may be to block the Democratic nominee from winning an electoral majority by running the Republican candidate in each state most able to win there. If the Democratic candidate were held short of 270 electoral votes, the outright majority, then the House of Representatives would be asked to choose the president from the top three vote-getters, regardless of what party they are from. If the House stays under GOP control, it would almost certainly select a Republican as president.
