GOP presidential candidate Andy Martin will hold a telephone news conference Friday, December 11th to suggest that a clandestine dinner meeting held by Reince Priebus and Mitch McConnell to purportedly prepare for a “brokered” convention is in reality a “Stop Trump” operation-in-the-making. Andy suggests that the conspirators will trigger a pro-Trump backlash in New Hampshire and eventually nationally, as rank-and-file Republicans are repulsed by the naked attempt to thwart the will of primary voters. Andy says the impact of the Priebus-McConnell cabal may be to keep “dead duck” candidates such as Jeb Bush and John Kasich in the race longer in the vain hope they can profit from a rigged nomination at the convention. “This will not end well for the party elites,” Andy predicts. “Some Republicans have attacked Trump with the accusation his campaign is benefiting Hillary Clinton. Now we know who are Clinton’s ‘Fifth Columnists’ in the GOP who are really helping her cause: Priebus, McConnell, Rubio and Bush.”

(Manchester, NH) (December 11, 2015)
This is my eleventh letter to the American people from the 2016 campaign trial. My comments come with a serious warning that if the so-called “insiders” and “elites” of the GOP – the Bush Family profiteers, Mitch McConnell and Beltway lobbyists – try to rig the 2016 National Convention against Donald Trump they are playing with matches. A “Stop Trump” effort is the dream of Hillary Clinton and her liberal media sycophants.
The Washington Post is reporting (please see link below) that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, Senator Mitch McConnell and representatives of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio met to discuss a “brokered” convention in which Donald Trump would be blocked if he held the largest number of delegates. Priebus and McConnell are playing with matches. They could set the Republican Party on fire.
As a candidate myself, I am not supporting or opposing Trump or any other candidate, with the exception of Jeb Bush whom I oppose. But I strongly support an open primary process and an honest, not brokered, convention.
First, Mitch McConnell is the most unpopular Washington official bar none. The mere fact that McConnell is involved in the brokering boondoggle will magnify the backlash. By adding his name to the Stop Trump meeting – although he coyly claimed he wasn’t an active participant – McConnell is sealing his own doom as a leader. McConnell will be replaced in 2017 if Republicans retain control of the senate.
Second, instead of inviting representatives of all of the candidates to the secret dinner, only Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio were allowed to send representatives. What does that tell you?
McConnell and Priebus may have also killed Marco Rubio’s chances for the nomination. (If Rubio has an ounce of common sense he will come out Friday and denounce the Stop Trump effort, to save Rubio’s own candidacy.) Jeb Bush is beyond resurrection.
Third, there will be a backlash in favor of Trump when Granite State voters learn the Washington elites are conspiring against them. The backlash will spread nationally. Under Jennifer Horn the New Hampshire Republican Party has an egregious record of trying to fix primaries and harass candidates. Trump is only the latest victim. Horn’s repeated attacks on Trump may be her effort to curry favor with national leaders.
The effort by Beltway Bandits to steal the presidential nomination from primary voters, and to hand the prize to a “dead duck” candidate favored by lobbyists and Bush brokers, will tear the party apart. Instead of having secret dinner meetings to plan conspiracies, we need more sunlight and more transparency in the party.
Granite State voters are going to be heard, because they obviously do not like what they are hearing from Washington.
Food for thought.
