Skip to comments.The tortured things GOP Senate candidates have said about Donald Trump, to date
Posted on 05/04/2016 5:06:30 AM PDT by kevcol
But many senators left wiggle room to back away from Trump if necessary; Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio), who is in a tough reelection battle back home, said he intends to support the nominee "unless something crazy happens." And according to our March survey, at least 22 Republicans aren't sure or wouldn't say. Newly minted Indiana GOP nominee Todd Young hasnt said anything we could find about whether he'd support Trump.
Only one Republican senator Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) has said clearly that he won't be on Team Trump.

“If trump is elected the world will end”.
This is a mantra repeated over and over by various diverse interests.
The thing is, it was a coordinated message. Who, then, coordinated it?
Those people should be named and punished.
The same ones who said, "What's the exit strategy?".
Own 100% by The Ricketts Family , who own the Cubs and TD Ameritrade. They have been the leaders with Mitt Romney in # Never Trump.
Hannity called him a Traitor at C-Pac and he found Hannity to stop bashing him.
He is worried about his imagige Nationally
My be time to remind him he works for the people not the Ricketts Family. I told him I will take his attitude against his fellow GOP House and Senators and copied my Rep and Senator they can thank Senator Ben Sasse if I don't vote for them.
I figure enough go up to him he might change his choice.
The chart looks inaccurate as it pertains to the junior Senator from Texas.
I don’t recall him saying he would support if the Donald was the nominee.
He spent almost 10 minutes on Meet the Press last week dodging that very question.
WaPo trying to stir the pot? NOooooo......
These are past quotes when GOP primaries were still in the process of sorting itself out.
What these senators say NOW is more important.
Tucker Carlson pointed out that many of the #NeverTrump people fear they would lose their jobs if Trump was elected.
Erick Erickson (Red State) for example. He assumed early on that there was no way a non-politician could win the nomination. He assumed he would be the hero when Trump inevitably failed.
Only Trump didn’t fail. He was wrong about everything in this election cycle. But, he makes his money convincing people he’s the guy that knows what will happen—the political expert.
A Trump loss and a return to “politics as usual” is the only chance he has to save his career. Hence he needs Hillary to be elected.
At this point, he literally is selling out his country for money.
Trump's going to have to put together a coalition of decent 'pubs and dems in the US Senate, as both parties there are full of back-stabbing anti-US citizen globalists. Why reward the creeps who STILL think they're the "lesser of two evils"?
Sasse wants the nomination in 2020. Brazen prick
Mr. Trump should pressure the national Republican organizations to not support any Senate or House Republican candidate who refuses to support the party’s nominee for president. This is just basic party discipline. No Republican who refuses to support our nominee should get a dime of party or party-affiliated money.
All of those falling on their swords since last night...
It is messy all over the place.
Can we get some paper towels over here??????
