Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Says GOP Candidates Should Pledge Not to Make Third-Party Bids



From The Politico, the Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebushas stated that GOP candidates should go on record and pledge they will not run a a third-party candidate in the 2016 Presidential general election. Wow, really Reince? All Republican candidates, or just one, Donald Trump? It would appear that The Donald is giving the establishment GOP fits as he is not following their script, telling it like it is and leading in many of the polls. Now whether you like him or hate him, Donald Trump serves a purpose. He is only popular because he represents the anti-establishment government do-nothing politician. The point of the matter is, the establishment GOP had best treat all candidates fairly, including one’s that don’t toe the RINO GOP party line. The Republican party these days treats their base worse than they do the likes of Hillary Clinton and Democrats. Maybe, just maybe a third party run is in order to destroy onnace and for all this establishment GOP, Democrat-light power hold. If Trump does run as a 3rd party candidate, the GOP will only have itself to blame.

Republican candidates for president should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Monday.

Presidential election. The remarks come days after current GOP front-runner Donald Trump hinted that he might pursue a third-party bid if the national committee treats him poorly during the primary process. In subsequent interviews, Trump has said the party has treated him well.

“Certainly, I think our candidates should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate. I don’t see that happening. I think everyone understands that if Hillary Clinton’s going to get beat, she’s going to get beat by a Republican. And most people that run for president run to win, and if our candidates want to win, then they’ll have to run as a Republican,” Priebus told NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie in a Monday interview on “Today.”

“I don’t fear that, and I think you’ve even seen Donald Trump walk that back over the last few days as well,” he added, praising his party’s “varsity squad” of 16 candidates.

Just curious Renince … where were you calling for Lisa Murkowski not to run as an independent, write in candidate after she lost to the Tea Party candidate Joe Miller in the Alaska US Senate primary? Hmm? Oh that’s right, she was an establishment GOP shill.

      Priebus is afraid that Trump just might do what Murkowski did in Alaska and win. Of course Murkowski used the labor unions to help her win the write-in after being beaten in the primary by Miller.

      Whenever the unions are involved, one can be certain that thuggery is at work.

      Taken to the extreme as always by
      those who seek to control others.
      Next we’ll see diesel smoke and automobile
      exhaust banned due to odor emissions
      and deleterious effects on the lungs. Perfume?
      Manure on lawns? Paint, thinner, construction
      noise, floral gardens (allergies) and on and on?

      can’t barbeque in Florida now unless you can control the smoke to your own property. supposedly it is now illegal for your grill smoke to cross over into your neighbor’s property.
      SM: I heard RONCO was going to bring back the smokeless ashtray and make them 20x’s larger for grills.
