Fox News host Sean Hannity said on his April 21st radio show that there are things going on behind the scenes to make certain there isn’t a contested convention. A number of other forces are moving in the direction of accepting a Trump nomination.
Neither Kasich nor Cruz have a path to the nomination except through a contested convention. Cruz at least won some states and will likely win more. Kasich, funded by George Soros, won one state.
Hannity joined Neil Cavuto on his show Thursday afternoon and told him that there are things going on behind the scenes and there won’t be a contested convention. He said that Marco Rubio and John Kasich will play a part.
Sean Hannity told Neil, “…I think what you’re going to see, and I don’t know what the partnerships will be. But, certainly Marco Rubio is going to play a part here. Certainly John Kasich is going to play a part here. So, I think you might see alliances converging before we even get to a convention.”
Another interesting development came when Rubio seemed to support Hannity’s contention by reversing his stance om supporting Trump on Wednesday.
“I’ve always said I’m going to support the Republican nominee and that’s especially true now that it’s apparent that Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democratic candidate,” Rubio said on WIOD in Miami on Wednesday, when asked if he would support Trump.
Scott Walker also said during a news conference Wednesday, he would support Trump should the GOP front-runner win the nomination.
Walker said, “I will support the Republican running against (Democratic front-runner) Hillary Clinton in the fall — whoever that is.”
In the end, Pat Buchanan nailed it. You have to stick with the person the people have chosen.
Pat Buchanan was on Hannity’s TV show last night and told Hannity that the party will belong to the guys who stand with the GOP nominee, not the guys who “walked away.”
“I think any Republican, major figure in the Republican Party who walks away, who walks away when Trump is the nominee and says, “I’m not endorsing him and I don’t really care if he loses,” is going to be just like the folks in ’64, Rockefeller and Romney, Scranton and all the rest.
And after that they were ancient history, Sean. Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan went all out for Goldwater when he was 50 points behind. Nixon traveled to more states, I think, than Goldwater did. They fought for the party and when the party went down to defeat they were right there standing with their guy. The future belonged to them, because of that and it didn’t belong to the guys who walked away and went over the hill.”
No matter who the winner is, Buchanan believes, the GOP has to stand with that man.
