Of all the living Republican presidential nominees and former presidents, only Bob Dole is expected to attend the Republican National Convention – and even then, only “briefly,” for the purpose of catching a luncheon hosted by his law firm, a source told Fox News earlier this month.
According to Fox News, the following is a list of prominent Republicans who say they’re not planning to attend the Republican National Convention — based on responses from their offices and previously published reports:
Former President George W. Bush
Former President George H.W. Bush
2008 Republican presidential nominee and Arizona Sen. John McCain
2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney
2016 presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush
Former Vice President Dick Cheney
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval
Wyoming Gov. Matthew Mead
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake
New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski
Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk
Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson
Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran
Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt
There remains no word from Sen. Ted Cruz, and Gov Nikki Haley is believed to be on the fence at this current time. And Trump hater Bill Kristol continues his quest to find an alternative to Trump. He announced yesterday that an Independent candidate is about to emerge.
Despite the GOP’s continued backlash against Trump, the billionaire is gaining popularity with Latino voters.
