As reported previously, Bill Kristol is trying to recruit and independent conservative to run against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Trump blasted Kristol after he sent out a tweet over the weekend claiming he had an exciting candidate preapring to announce.
Now we know who Kristol has in mind. Bloomburg has the story…
Two Republicans intimately familiar with Bill Kristol’s efforts to recruit an independent presidential candidate to challenge Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have told Bloomberg Politics that the person Kristol has in mind is David French — whose name the editor of the Weekly Standard floated in the current issue of the magazine.
So who is the great white hope of the #NeverTrump dead enders?
French is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. According to the website of National Review, where French is a staff writer, he is a constitutional lawyer, a recipient of the Bronze Star, and an author of several books who lives in Columbia, Tenn., with his wife Nancy and three children.
Yeah. Let me know how that works out.
