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.
