So let’s say I’m a moderate Republican desperately hoping for a return to sanity. Or a party powerbroker desperately hoping for a candidate who will play ball. Or a…
Yanno what, let’s just say I’m Super Reince Priebus.
If I decide that I really don’t want to see Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, what can I do at this point to stop his nomination?
AIUI, I could throw the political and fiscal strength of the RNC and its supporters at Rubio, and hope that gains him enough delegates to win him the nomination outright. Barring that, hope that he gets enough to force a contested convention.
At which point I hope to leverage backroom deals and whatnot to get Rubio the nod.
Is that about right? Is that it?
Is there anything the “establishment” can do to slow or stop the Donald train?
