Karl Rove Suggests a “Fresh Face” for GOP Nominee

Twitter explodes in a rage, from supporters of both Trump and Cruz.

In an appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Karl Rove just single-handedly united all supporters of BOTH Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, when he suggested that a “fresh face” should be chosen as nominee at the GOP convention.

Asked by Hewitt which of the remaining GOP candidates is most electable, Rove pivoted to suggest that none of the current candidates may end up being the nominee.    “All the current candidates have their problems,” Rove answered. “But there might be an outsider with just the right combination of attributes who could lead Republicans to victory”

“If we have somebody who we think has, has been battle-tested, and has strong conservative principles and the ability to articulate them, and they are nominated at this convention, there will be a lot of acrimony from the people who were seeking the nomination. But if it’s somebody who has, you know, has those convictions that they can express in a compelling way, we could come out of the convention in relatively strong position … And a fresh face might be the thing that could give us a chance to turn this election and win in November against Hillary.”

From the many twitter responses to his “fresh face” statement, the voters from both Trump’s and Cruz’s camp are NOT happy.   If the GOP establishment attempts to give the nomination to someone who has not even campaigned, will there be any voters left?
