    “I agree with these folks that Trump is no conservative, and he’s more interested in redefining the Republican Party than in unifying it,” Blackwell explained. “I believe he is self-centered enough, and wants a win this election enough, that these folks can get his attention and perhaps find common ground. If not, he’ll have a problem this November.”

    Advocates working to stop Donald Trump admitted Tuesday that Trump's victory in Indiana makes it harder for them to take him down now. Yet, they vowed to keep fighting. In a statement to reporters Tuesday, Never Trump PAC's senior adviser Rory Cooper said "obviously Trump's victory in Indiana makes the road ahead more challenging." "We will continue to seek opportunities to oppose his nomination and draw a clear line between him and the values of the conservative cause," Cooper said in the statement. "If nominated, he will lose in historic fashion, threatens down ballot campaigns and likely usher in a...

    What a difference two weeks have made for the #NeverTrump campaign. On the night of April 5, Ted Cruz decisively won the Wisconsin primary, with Donald Trump stuck in second place in familiar 35 percent territory. At his victory event, Cruz, who took home 36 of Wisconsin's 42 delegates, declared the state a "turning point" in the race. Cruz allies in the #NeverTrump effort were jubilant. "'Member when some said we couldn't stop @realDonaldTrump? Wrong," tweeted Katie Packer of the anti-Trump Our Principles PAC. "Congrats to all who stopped him from hijacking GOP #NeverTrump #cleveland." Of course, Cruz and his...

    First they spent tens of millions trying to boost their favorite presidential candidates, then they poured cash into ads attacking Donald Trump, and now some of the biggest donors on the right are turning their attention to the delegate fight. Anti-Trump billionaires are funding ground operations in an increasing number of states to try to ensure the selection of national convention delegates who oppose Trump. The strategy is being executed by the anti-Trump Our Principles PAC, which has a stated goal of blocking the bombastic billionaire from clinching the GOP presidential nomination before the party’s convention in July. But the...

    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict.

These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict. So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Eric Errickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund...

    Two of the most prominent outside groups funding efforts to prevent Donald Trump from winning the Republican nomination will spend heavily in Wisconsin, the next primary state, NBC News has learned. Our Principles PAC is making a "very robust" investment in the state to fund a cable television ad buy, digital ads, direct and phone calls targeting Republican primary voters. The television ads are expected to be on air Monday. The decision by Our Principles PAC was announced Friday, one day after another anti-Trump group, the Club for Growth, announced its own $1 million advertisement buy in the Badger State....

    WATCH: New Bush/Romney Operatives Ad Features Women Reading Controversial Trump Quotes A new video created by the ‘Our Principles PAC’ features a number of female actors reading controversial quotes from U.S. Republican front runner Donald Trump, timed to coincide with voting in ‘Super Tuesday 2’, where millions of Americans will cast their votes across the states of Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio. The advertisement, which was first shown on CNN last night, features quotes from Mr. Trump such as jokes from the Howard Stern show, as well as times that he has called individual women “bimbos”, “dogs” and...

    John Kasich on Tuesday said he's "very concerned" by Donald Trump’s rhetoric toward women — a comment that comes a day after an anti-Trump super PAC released an ad that shows a series of women using the New York billionaire’s words against him. "I just saw a commercial, I guess, last night of these comments that were made about women," Kasich told reporters after voting for himself at a precinct in Westerville, Ohio. "I have two daughters. They see this stuff. What do you think they think? We'll have more to say about that."

    A mysterious Super PAC with links to Rubio and Romney promises to "kill off" Donald Trump in South Carolina. DC Whispers reported: This mysterious, Mitt-Romney-linked Super PAC is letting it be known they are prepared for all-out war to ensure Mr. Trump gets nowhere near the GOP nomination. The name of the "anyone but Trump" multi-million dollar effort calls itself the, Our Principles PAC and is headed by former Mitt Romney deputy campaign manager, Katie Packer. One of Packer's oft-repeated complaints against Donald Trump is that he is a RINO. That's right, the former Deputy campaign manager for MITT ROMNEY,...

    As much of the political world shifts its attention towards the South Carolina primary, MSNBCs Steve Kornacki checked in this morning with Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), the states former governor. Sanford noted he’d heard from a lot of locals that supporting Donald Trump would help send a message to Washington. The Trump candidacy, the congressman added, has tapped into Republicans frustrations. Sanford’s troubles were understandable. There were plenty of Republicans who effectively, if not literally, ruled out Trump as a possibility in 2015, when they still assumed the New York developer’s support would collapse. But many of those same GOP...

    Time is running out fast for the “anyone but Trump” wing of the Republican Party. Donald Trump’s march to the nomination is far from inevitable after a resounding New Hampshire victory, but the state’s failure to whittle down the field to a manageable number is threatening to tip the delegate race in his favor before anyone can stop him. Unless the field can consolidate behind one or two alternatives in the next few weeks, Republicans warn, the odds of a Trump victory or a brokered convention will increase dramatically. “I think if Trump is the front-runner on March 15 and...

    Ted Cruz's critics are wasting no time hitting him in South Carolina. American Future Fund, a conservative group that spent heavily against Cruz in Iowa, will begin airing a TV commercial in South Carolina that labels Cruz as "weak" on national security -- a damaging label in military-heavy South Carolina. The spot ties Cruz to Bernie Sanders, the liberal insurgent who's gaining momentum in the Democratic primary, and President Barack Obama. "Ted Cruz talks tough on national security. But look at his record. Cruz voted with Bernie Sanders against defense spending," the ad says. "Cruz sided with Obama to weaken...

    National Review's editor Rich Lowry is thrilled Donald Trump didn't win in Iowa on Monday, and he thinks January's special issue of the magazine, titled "Conservatives Against Trump," had something to do with it. The conservative publication came out with an editorial and essays from 22 prominent conservatives, effectively declaring war on the Republican Party's poll leader just days before GOP primary voters cast their first ballots of the 2016 election cycle. Lowry began by thanking those who had participated in the issue and other anti-Trump conservatives, like super PAC founder Katie Packer, just after Cruz's win was announced on...

    A new ad that brutally exposes Donald Trump's hypocrisy vis-a-vis illegal immigration did not come from any of his current opponents, but rather Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump group led by former Mitt Romney aide Katie Packer. The ad opens by asserting that the reason Trump is skipping Thursday"s GOP debate is "Trump can't handle tough questions, like why he'd let millions of illegal immigrants stay in America and even supports a pathway to citizenship." The ad then shows Trump addressing a Chicago audience last June, sounding as if he endorsed giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. Trump lectured,...

    With less than a week until the Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump is facing an 11th-hour barrage of negative advertising - with a new anti-Trump group spending more than $1 million in a last-ditch effort to defeat him. Our Principles PAC, a newly formed super PAC set up by a former top aide to Mitt Romney, is set to begin airing a TV ad in Iowa that calls into question his devotion to conservative positions - and asks Iowa voters bluntly, "How much do we really know about Donald Trump?" The ad, which invokes Trump's past statements on hot-button issues like...

The group, which is called Our Principles PAC, is founded by Katie Packer, a veteran Republican strategist who served as deputy campaign manager on Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.
