Donald Trump flip flops on pledge to support any GOP nominee


The candidates looked at Wisconsin’s primary in one week as a pivotal one in the race.Trump’s missive reflects the still-unclear path his campaign faces in claiming the 1,237 delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland that would make him the nominee. He listed the Republican National Committee, the Republican Party and party establishment among those he believes have wronged him.Kasich similarly refused to say explicitly whether or not he could support Trump as the nominee.Ted Cruz for a third time would not say that he would support Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee, the latest sign that his pledge to do so may be softening. “I’m not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and my family”, Cruz said.”Ted Cruz doesn’t need to support me”, Trump continued.”I’ve got to see what happens”, Kasich said.The hope in Kasich world is that Cruz pulls back in some of the upcoming primaries in the Northeast, like NY and New Jersey, where they hope the OH governor has a chance of doing well.There has been intense speculation that Republican Party leaders may put forth a new candidate at the Republican convention if Trump fails to win the requisite number of delegates to secure the nomination. Delegates there might turn to other candidates if the billionaire fails to win on the first ballot.By the way, these are out of books – this isn’t Trump, 20,000 fewer people in labor force in Wisconsin than seven years ago. Trump’s campaign manager was charged with battery after allegedly grabbing a reporter.Cruz has picked up support from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a former Republican presidential contender. He topped Kasich, 46% to 44%, and crushed Cruz, 52% to 29%, and Trump, 54% to 35%. Kasich lags behind with 143. He predicted that none of the candidates will have enough delegates to sew up the nomination before the convention, leaving delegates to choose the candidate that would best challenge Democrats in the fall. “I think both the presidential, vice presidential nominees should either be a former or current governor, people who have done successful things in their states, who have taken on big reforms, who are ready to move America forward”.
