Wealthy Republicans Planning to Run Third Party Candidate to Stop Trump

February 27th, 2016

Some other flunky Republican-as-3rd-Party candidate would simply take votes from Trump, making it more likely that Clinton would win. These guys don’t think that their candidate will have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning.

In other words, these Republicans would rather have Clinton for President than Trump, and they’re working to make that happen.

And if some vote fraud happens on election day… *meh* I guess the 3rd party candidate took some votes away from the Donald.

Remember the line from Good Fellas?

“And that’s that.”

Conservative donors have engaged a major GOP consulting firm in Florida to research the feasibility of mounting a late, independent run for president amid growing fears that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination.

A memo prepared for the group zeroes in on ballot access as a looming obstacle for any independent candidate, along with actually identifying a viable, widely known contender and coalescing financial support for that person. The two states with the earliest deadlines for independent candidates, Texas and North Carolina, also have some of the highest hurdles for independents to get on the ballot, according to the research.

“All this research has to happen before March 16, when inevitably Trump is the nominee, so that we have a plan in place,” a source familiar with the discussions said. March 16 is the day after the GOP primary in Florida, a winner-take-all contest that Marco Rubio supporters have identified as a must-win to stop Trump’s early momentum.

“It’s critical some serious attention is given to this,” the source said.

The document, stamped “confidential,” was authored by staff at Data Targeting, a Republican firm based in Gainesville, Fla. The memo notes that “it is possible to mount an independent candidacy but [it] will require immediate action on the part of this core of key funding and strategic players.”

Data Targeting did not respond to a request for comment on the memo.

    Clinton is able to impress some people as a liberal by bringing up a few superficial social issues plus she actually is very smart, understands government, and well prepared, and is able to quickly deliver a good response to most questions.
    However, a few people have managed to retrieve records of what Clinton was doing in 1992-2000, buying into the tough on crime ‘superpredator’ idea, played a role in ending welfare (which has now effectively been replaced by SSI and food stamps). The US did thousands of bombing raids in Iraq before 2000 to the point they were running out of targets, and then H. Clinton sought to become the head of the state Dept.
