    Kristol's Independent Candidate Reportedly Revealed

    The #NeverTrump Movement’s Independent Candidate Reportedly Revealed

    He may be popular with social conservatives.

    Randy DeSoto May 31, 2016 at 3:35pm

    The identity of the “impressive” independent presidential candidate to challenge presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump that conservative commentator Bill Kristol tweeted about Sunday night reportedly has been revealed.

    Bloomberg Politics reports that two Republicans familiar with Kristol’s efforts say the person who will put his hat in the ring is constitutional attorney and National Review writer David French.

    French is an Iraq War veteran and former senior counsel with both the American Center for Law and Justice and Alliance Defending Freedom, according to his biography on National Review’s site. He is a gradate of Harvard Law School and also the author of the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore.

    Clearly Kristol’s description of him as “impressive,” at least with regards to his credentials, is accurate. Whether that will translate into a credible run for the presidency is the question. While Trump never served in political office, he had the advantage of having nationwide name recognition.

    French’s credibility with social conservatives would likely be strong, given his work with two organizations important to that group: the ACLJ and ADF. His wife, Nancy, is also a New York Times best-selling author of books, mostly dealing with Christian topics, and she collaborated on a book with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

    The National Review, for which French is a staff writer, dedicated an entire issue in January to conservative thinkers voicing their opposition to Trump’s candidacy.

    Trump responded to Kristol’s Sunday tweet with some of his own, including this one:

    Donald J. Trump Verified account ‏@realDonaldTrump

    If dummy Bill Kristol actually does get a spoiler to run as an Independent, say good bye to the Supreme Court!

    Romney Supports David French for Third-Party Run

    By Jeffrey Rodack | 01 Jun 2016 10:01 AM

    Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, announced on Twitter Tuesday that French, a National Review columnist, was "honorable, intelligent and patriotic," according to a report in the Washington Examiner.

    Romney's tweet:
    I know David French to be an honorable, intelligent and patriotic person. I look forward to following what he has to say.
    — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) June 1, 2016

    French, who has been outspoken against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, has yet to decide whether he will mount a third-party challenge, the Examiner reported. But there are increasing calls from some conservative elements in the Republican Party for a serious third-party effort to block Trump.

    French did tweet out a message to his supporters shortly after Romney seemed supportive to the idea, according to the Examiner.
    I'm incredibly humbled by and grateful for the many expressions of support -- thank you.
    — David French (@DavidAFrench) June 1, 2016
    Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, is pushing for a serious third-party candidate to block Trump and raised the idea of a French candidacy.

    "To say that he would be a better and a more responsible president than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is to state a truth that would become self-evident as more Americans got to know him," Krisol said in a Weekly Standard column.
