The chairman of the Senate Republican campaign arm is telling vulnerable colleagues in tough races to stay away from the GOP presidential convention this summer.

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman, warns that a fight between supporters of candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at a contested convention in Cleveland is the last place vulnerable Republicans need to be.

“If there’s going to be a brouhaha, I’m advising candidates to be present for more unifying events,” Wicker told The Hill.

And he’s far from alone in his opinion.

    Leave it to the GOP establishment to seize defeat from the jaws of victory. If Trump doesn’t get the nomination, the RNC and GOP are done.

        And NO MORE professional politicians!! In the earlier years of The Constitution, we got along fine electing businessmen from among the people. That system worked so much better the electing of the career politicians who go into office to become millionaires. You think I’m kidding?? Check the worth, before and after, they enter office. They become rich from the hard earned money taxpayers pay into their rapacious government!!
