No matter what the candidates say, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is confident that everyone will eventually support the party’s nominee — because they don’t really have a choice:
“They’re not gonna get the data and the tools of the RNC … and tell me they’re not gonna support the nominee, it doesn’t work that way,” the Republican National Committee chairman said in an appearance on Fox News Thursday.
As Trump sparked a series of controversial headlines on the trail and in interviews over the past week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have both called into question their support if Trump is the nominee. And on Tuesday, Trump was clear that he wasn’t holding to his pledge: “No, I don’t anymore,” he said during CNN’s town hall.
Well, that’s one way to do it.
