• Donald Trump Meets With RNC Chair Reince Priebus

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump will meet with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus “at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan Thursday afternoon to discuss the ‘loyalty pledge.’”

    The RNC, seeking to avert a 2016 disaster, privately reached out to GOP presidential candidates Wednesday to ask whether they’d be willing to sign a pledge to support whoever is nominated by the Republican Party and not oppose them in the general election or run as an independent candidate.

    The move is an implicit challenge to Trump, the only candidate who declined to rule out a third-party run during the first GOP debate, a prospect that could seriously damage the GOP’s chances of reclaiming the White House.

    Trump could sink the eventual Republican nominee if he were to pull just a fraction of the vote as an independent, write-in or third party candidate.
