'Small Window' Remains For An Independent Run
#NeverTrump Republicans are still searching for someone to run against Donald Trump, the likely party nominee. Yesterday Ted Cruz, who dropped out of the race last week, ruled out running as an independent. A third-party candidate has never been elected President of the United States.
Ballotpedia’s Sarah Rosier tells Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson that there is still a small window of time for an independent candidate to put his or her name on state ballots, but there’s a developing split in the #NeverTrump movement that makes it less likely that Republicans against Trump will settle on a candidate to run against him.
