Mitt Romney, the GOP’s 2012 nominee, is among those courting prospects for a possible third-party bid to keep Donald Trump from the White House, according to a Washington Post report.
Among those prospects are Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), one of Trump’s most vocal Republican critics, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who suspended his presidential campaign in early May.
Kasich’s chief strategist John Weaver said the governor isn’t interested in running an an independent.
A Sasse spokesman declined to comment.
But it’s not looking to good for a late in the game third-party bid, according to the report.
Deadlines have passed to get on the ballot in big states like Texas, though organizers argue a legal challenge there would be successful.
