While some Republicans have attacked the GOP establishment for trying to find ways to stop Donald Trump’s drive to their party’s nomination, now a group of more conservative activists are gathering in Washington on Thursday to take stock of their options – including a possible third party bid.
“I have signed no oath of loyalty to Donald Trump or the GOP,” wrote Erick Erickson, the conservative talk show host who has helped spearhead this meeting.
“I am a conservative. I believe in limited governments, free markets, and free people. Donald Trump does not,” Erickson wrote on his website, the Resurgent on Thursday morning.
The group includes Erickson, Bob Fischer, a businessman from South Dakota, and Bill Wichterman, who worked for President George W. Bush, in part as a liaison to the conservative GOP community.
Why do some conservatives believe Trump will be better than his word? We usually believe the opposite. #NeverTrump
