Report: Romney Recruiting Kasich, Sasse for Third-Party Option
In a strange turn of events, Mitt Romney is courting prospects for a third-party run.
The Hill reports:
Other prospects include Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), one of Trump’s most vocal Republican critics, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who suspended his presidential campaign in early May.
Kasich’s chief strategist, John Weaver, said the governor isn’t interested in running as an independent.
A Sasse spokesman declined to comment.
But it’s not looking too good for a late-in-the-game third-party bid, according to the report.
Deadlines have passed to get on the ballot in big states like Texas, though organizers argue a legal challenge there would be successful.
