David French Third Party Run A “Suicide Mission”: Priebus

Opposition to Donald Trump as the Republican standard-bearer remains strong, with the #NeverTrump team leader William Kristol suggesting that well-known conservative writer and Iraq War vet David French to run in the November election.

Of note, French has not made any announcement regarding plans to run for the presidency, and the time that would be required to get him on the ballot in all 50 states is ticking down quickly.

RNC’s Priebus Says French Bid Would Just Be A “Huge Distraction”

Although he tried to be diplomatic, RNC chair Reince Priebus is clearly not a big David French fan. In an interview on the Hugh Hewitt Show earlier this week, Priebus admitted "I don't really know" French, then went on to slam the idea as a "suicide mission".

"Look, I don't want to say anything disparaging against the guy because I don't know him and I'm sure he's a good person, but I think it's also just this sort of suicide mission, and a huge distraction," Priebus said in remarks posted by Politico.



He went on to say: "I don't see it going anywhere."

Priebus also pointed out the Trump Leadership Victory team includes several well-known backers of former political rivals as well as senior party insiders who support the infrastructure of the Republican Party.
