Ben Sasse, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, and More Need to Stand Up

Last night, Trump took Arizona and Cruz took Utah. Trump got more delegates, but Cruz made it more difficult for Trump to get to 1,237. And Kasich? Kasich got stomped in Arizona by Marco Rubio, a man no longer in the race. It is clear that Trump can be stopped, but some folks need to step up now.

I’m a big Ben Sasse fan, but I’m at the point where I think his actions need to live up to his rhetoric. He, like Rubio, has gone in all #NeverTrump, and he, like Rubio, is sitting on the sidelines really doing nothing but speechifying.

It’s all well and good to hear him preach on what conservatism is, but Nebraska is coming up, he’s popular, and I haven’t seen an endorsement for Ted Cruz coming from him.

Same with Scott Walker in Wisconsin. The man has ambitions for future campaigns, but won’t stand up now to stop Trump from wrecking the GOP. Already, I’ve got to imagine that Ron Johnson’s future political career is burned toast. No way Ron Johnson gets re-elected with Donald Trump on the ballot. Reince Priebus too could be pulling strings in Wisconsin behind the scenes to stop this insanity. As far as I know all of them are doing jack.

We’ve reached a point where grown ass men think giving a speech is taking action. Actually, taking a stand, being bold, and telling the party faithful it is time to stand with Ted Cruz is doing something.

Hand wringing about never, ever, never voting for Trump, but refusing to endorse the only viable alternative is kids play.

It is time for Ben Sasse, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, and the rest to stand up, be bold, and loudly reject Donald Trump in favor of Ted Cruz. That can actually make a difference. Moving political operations, supporters, and donors behind Cruz can stop Trump. Kasich cannot. Every day moving forward a vote for Kasich is just a vote for Trump.

Get off the fence, Ben. Get off the fence, Scott. Get off the fence, Marco. We can stop Trump if we unite.
