Famed Columnist George Will Leaves Republican Party
How can thinking men and women, those serious minded people who do ponder policy, remain in the Republican Party? Well some of the most cerebral are leaving.
Conservative columnist George Will says he is leaving the Republican Party because of Donald Trump. Will, who resides in Maryland, said he changed his affiliation this month from Republican to unaffiliated.
A report from PJ Media quoted Will as saying: “This is not my party.”
Will has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, correctly noting in a column in April that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is imperiling Republican chances of maintaining its majority in the Senate.
At least half a dozen Republican senators seeking reelection and Senate aspirants can hope to win if the person at the top of the Republican ticket loses their state by, say, only four points, but not if he loses by 10″.
