VIA| A former advisor for Pat Buchanan has launched a petition that threatens to launch a new political movement if the Republican Party does not nominate Donald Trump.
Paul Nagy, who founded the Draft Buchanan movement in 1992 and went on to serve as his Northeast campaign director, launched a petition on Sunday titled “We Will Walk.” According toDaily Caller, it already has over 1,000 signatures.
The petition reads, “Let it be understood that if Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party power brokers steal the Republican nomination from Donald Trump at the convention — when Trump is the clear leader — we will walk out of the Republican party and not support its nominee.”
Nagy said on Monday that he believes the chances of Trump having the plurality of delegates and not receiving the nomination is over 50 percent. He added that he is currently working “to make sure if that happens there is a vehicle for Donald Trump to step into.”
The advisor went on to say that a movement that came about from the exclusion of Trump would not be exclusive to the business mogul.
“I believe that this movement transcends Trump individually. I mean this is about the country. It’s like Trump said ‘do we wanna have a country or not?’” Nagy said. “It doesn’t have to be Trump. I mean this movement can take hold and that’s one of the things I hope to be a part of. I want to bring down the current Republican Party. I want to get rid of the impotent snobs.”
