Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus suggested there will be consequences for GOP politicians who fail to get behind presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, Priebus had harsh words for failed presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, as well as other Republicans who have not endorsed Trump for president.
“And if they’re thinking they’re going to run again someday, I think we’re going to evaluate the nomination process, and I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for them,” he warned.Reince Priebus
The GOP chairman pointed to the RNC pledge signed by all candidates which promises they will support the candidate who is nominated during the primary season.
“Look, people who agreed to support the nominee, who took part in our process, they used tools from the RNC,” he explained. “They agreed to support the nominee. They took part in our process.”Reince Priebus
The RNC chairman’s statements may not be enough to convince Trump’s primary opponents to support their rival, particularly in light of the harsh statements Trump made about them during the primaries.
