GOP race: Reine Priebus won’t guarantee nominee will be Trump, Cruz or Kasich

The term from the Republican establishment is “unlikely” when pressed about a substitute candidate being put ahead of the remaining GOP candidates.

“It’s far too late,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Sunday. Priebus also said another candidate would only doom Republicans in November.

“Some folks find it to be interesting and that’s great,” Priebus said. “But it isn’t likely and it’s probably too late and there is no definitive answer right now as to who the nominee is going to be of our party.”

Stephanopoulos asked him if the Republican nominee would be Trump or either of his opponents, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) or Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), Priebus said he couldn’t guarantee that for certain.

“I think it would be highly unlikely if it’s not,” he said. “I can’t 100 percent guarantee that. But I can’t imagine right now sitting here believing it would be anyone but the three remaining candidates.”

New York Times reported that “leading conservatives are prepared to field an independent candidate in the general election,” an article which is certain to fuel conspiracy theories and anxiety among votes.

Names under consideration include former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Previously, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s name was floated as well.
