The New Great White Hope Of GOP Establishment: “Mitt Romney has been suggested by some to be the last ditch effort by the Republican party to oust current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
Pulling out all the stops, Romney gave a heated speech regarding why he believes that Trump is not fit to be president and urged voters to back anyone but Trump. The former presidential candidate, who infamously lost to Barack Obama in 2012, refused to endorse a particular candidate, but instead told voters to vote for whichever candidate had the best chance of beating Trump in each individual state.
For example, Romney suggests voting for Rubio in Florida, John Kasich in Ohio, and for Ted Cruz or whichever one of the other two contenders has the best chance of beating Mr. Trump in the given state.
This type of rhetoric, not endorsing a particular candidate, has some questioning whether Romney could be trying to throw the Republican National Convention into a tailspin to ensure that no one candidate receives enough votes, causing the convention to be deadlocked.”
