Conservatives Against Trump rally to find ‘acceptable alternative candidate’

A group of conservatives, calling themselves Conservatives Against Trump, will now go from opposing Donald Trump  during the GOP primary season to a complete boycott in the general election, not vowing to support a third-party candidacy.

Saying this is not just a fight for the “heart and soul of the Republican Party” but a battle for the future of the country, said in a statement that “This week, Conservatives Against Trump launched a formal effort to identify an acceptable alternative candidate to run for president against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.”
The group of activists includes radio talk show host Erick Erickson, former George W. Bush adviser Bill Wichterman and businessman Bob Fischer.

“We believe the political environment remains wide open for a qualified conservative candidate to emerge,” the group said. “We are working to identify an alternative candidate, obtain the necessary ballot access through a state-by-state effort and develop a comprehensive campaign plan to enable victory in November.”

“We will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton; but we will vote,” the statement concluded.
Erickson told CNN’s Dana Bash earlier this week, “Donald Trump cannot consolidate the Republican base, and many Republicans cannot accept a Hillary Clinton donor as the Republican nominee. If the delegates ratify this madness in Cleveland, many of us will look elsewhere for a credible candidate to oppose both Trump and Clinton.”
He added: “We will begin now laying the groundwork for an exit strategy from Donald Trump’s Republican Party.”
