Not sure what the point of this is. Do some neocons think that this is enough of a wrench to derail Trump? Seems a rather desperate attempt at this point. How is this guy supposed to get ballot access?
And there is an obvious choice at this point for those who are inclined in the conservative direction (but not neoconservative direction which is likely the issue here) in Gary Johnson. And he has ballot access.
It’s been a weird election.
“In a year where Americans have lost faith in the candidates of both major parties, it’s time for a generation of new leadership to step up,” McMullin said in a statement to ABC News. “It’s never too late to do the right thing, and America deserves much better than either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton can offer us. I humbly offer myself as a leader who can give millions of disaffected Americans a conservative choice for President.”
Citing “multiple sources” in a series of posts to Twitter, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was the first to announce McMullin’s bid. He said McMullin will kick off his campaign Monday and has “the backing of key $$ contributors in the Republican Party.”
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.
