If Donald Trumps Runs for President, Could He Mess Up the Republican Primary? - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 3/19/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

So Donald Trump has announced his plans to pursue a possible Presidential bid. I like the guy, he makes me laugh and he has spoken out on issues more than most Republicans have so I give him that. I am concerned that he could mess up the whole deal for the Republicans in the primary. If you recall, billionaire Ross Perot split the vote with George H.W. Bush and all that did for us is give us Clinton. I’m worried that Trump, because he has the money to stay in the race long after his chance of winning the nomination is over, could split the vote with a conservative like Walker, or Cruz, and thus give us Bush by default. It reminds me of Huckabee that stayed in and took votes away from Romney. Just like Perot, Trump has the money to do whatever he wants. I just hope he doesn’t stay in too long and we end up with a moderate. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
