The latest trends in the presidential race are creating some unusual circumstances and strategies, with The New York Times reporting that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has laid out a plan that has congressional Republicans breaking with Donald Trump should Trump become the nominee.

“While still hopeful that Mr. Rubio might prevail, Mr. McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election,” The Times reports.

The article cites senators attending recent GOP getherings, reporting: “Mr. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Mr. Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton.”


  1. You’ve read how Sumner Redstone has been finally brought to court and has shown a lack of competency? Maybe it’s time for the same to happen to McConnell. Hopeful Rubio will prevail? That’s a clear break from reality.

  2. If the Republican elected senators were to mount a negative campaign against the candidate the people selected it would guarantee that the senators and any other elected politicians would crash and burn in the next election. McConnell is incapable of comprehending that politics as usual in the Republican party is no more. The people of this nation want a party responsive to THEM, not the preservation of government jobs for career politicians.
