If You Can’t Beat Them…

Make sure it’s a contested convention!

 

With South Carolina looking likely to send Donald Trump his second victory, Republican Party insiders are scheming for a brokered convention as their only hope to stop him or Ted Cruz and wrestle the nomination away from GOP voters.

 

The GOP establishment has been completely incapable of reckoning with the right-wing forces propelling Cruz and Trump to the only first place wins so far. With Marco Rubio wavering between projecting a strong third-place-is-first-place in South Carolina or needing a brokered convention to break through, it’s looking more and more likely that option B is the only way for party insiders to regain their stranglehold of their fractured party.
