One more has jumped OFF the “Never Trump” train!
Chicago Cubs Owners Joe and Marlene Ricketts have spent at least $5.5 million funding an anti-Trump super PAC, “Our Principals PAC” in an effort to stop Donald Trump’s campaign – but it’s all been money down the drain.
Now their son, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, has officially ENDORSED Trump’s candidacy. The Governor gave his gracious endorsement at Trump’s rally in Omaha Friday.

“Politics is run by the people that show up … By showing up today, you have demonstrated you want to chart a new course for our country,” Ricketts told the crowd in his introductory remarks for Trump. He urged them to “get behind our nominee” to prevent likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from winning the White House, CNN reported.
Trump called Ricketts a “great governor.”
Reportedly, no other family members plan to endorse Trump, and their PAC still opposes Trump.
