ALERT: Three GOP State Parties Are Colluding Against Trump By Introducing ‘Anti-Trump’ Rule
Establishment Republicans in three neighboring East Coast states are hoping to throw a monkey wrench into Donald Trump’s breakaway presidential campaign. Though he has been the party’s front-runner since shortly after announcing his candidacy, Republicans in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina are considering a requirement for primary candidates that he might not be able to meet.
In the first few minutes of the first GOP presidential debate, Trump was the only candidate on the stage to acknowledge that he could not rule out a possible third-party candidacy should he not win the Republican nomination.
Many in the party believe such a bid would siphon votes from Republicans and ensure a Democrat victory. Party leaders in the aforementioned states, therefore, are considering forcing any Republican candidate, prior to appearing on state primary ballots, to vow he or she will not pursue a third-party candidacy.
