Tom Ridge: 'I Can't Vote for Donald Trump'
Newsmax ^ | December 11,2015 | Todd Beamon

Posted on 12/12/2015 9:08:39 AM PST by Hojczyk

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge said Friday that he would not support Donald Trump as Republican presidential nominee — and that "a real possibility" existed that he might not vote at all in next year's election if that is the case.

"I think he is an embarrassment to the party," Ridge, who became the nation's first secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush in 2003, told Neil Cavuto on Fox News. "If he is the man who has the votes, then that's the way it will be."

But when asked whether he would support the billionaire developer, Ridge said: "No. I can't vote for Donald Trump."

For Democrat Hillary Clinton?

"No," he replied. "I couldn't do that either. I know I can't support Donald for a variety of reasons."

"What does Tom Ridge do?" Cavuto asked. "Don't vote at all?"

"A real possibility," the former governor said. "It would be tough for me … , but I don't think Donald Trump will get the nod."

Trump hit back sharply on Twitter:

Donald J. Trump Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Follow Tom Ridge should be focused on trying to bring the party together rather than ripping it apart w/ your faulty thought process. I will win! 1:37 PM - 11 Dec 2015

Donald J. Trump Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Follow Tom Ridge is a failed 'Bushy' & PA Governor. Him & his friend @KarlRove shouldn't be allowed to do their bias commentary- nobody listens! 1:49 PM - 11 Dec 2015

I just donated to the Ted Cruz campaign. I did so because our nation is at a cross road. Socialism, racism, Islam, and financial disaster are at our doorstep. In the last 8 years or national debt has doubled, employment and GDP are stale. I believe this generation will determine whether we go the route of Venezuela, Europe, or our Patriots, who fought and died for our freedoms again tyranny. My prayer is that you will look at our candidates carefully, vote, even in the primaries, as though your children’s and your grandchildren’s future depend upon it, because they do.

I support Ted Cruz, because he stands with our founding fathers and their dream. He is the real conservative candidate and his track record proves this. while I’m not asking you to donate to Ted Cruz, please consider supporting Ted. He is the Ronald Reagan of our generation.

No one should EVER again be willing to accept “the lesser of two evils” when the GOP puts up a bad candidate.

Dole?
McCain?
Romney?
Bush?

For the rest of my life, I will stay home if the GOP can’t give me someone I’m excited about.
The GOP will not support the people’s choice? The people should not support the establishment choice.

This is the next “trick” in the GOPe’s “bag,” trot out a never-ending flow of has-been RINO turds saying “they won’t vote for Trump! ALL of this stuff simply further solidifies the first-place position of Trump. I hope now that they get to the “jumping out of windows” phase. This is just like the Walll St. Crash for them.

I think he ran for governor on school choice. PA still does not have school choice, nor do I ever remember it being seriously discussed other than campaign rhetoric.
