What Pataki said about Trump's nomination

George Pataki was a rarity in recent New York politics: a Republican governor. The fact that he was able to win such a high office despite his party affiliation in a “blue state” speaks to his ability to be more moderate in his views. As someone who does lean more moderately than the current candidates for President in the Republican Party, it’s no surprise that he does not support Trump in this election.

Not holding back on his choice of words, Pataki believes a Trump nomination would be devastating for their party. He said, “I think Donald Trump would drive the Republicans off a cliff if he’s our nominee. I am encouraging people to come out and vote ... whether you like [Ted] Cruz or whether you like [John] Kasich, your vote counts.” Pataki has yet to endorse either candidate, but has promised to do so before the New York primaries. He does feel that Kasich has the ability to appeal to the center that would give him an edge in a general election, but also noted that Cruz has shown a better ability to campaign.

If Trump is unable to secure enough delegates ahead of the Republican Convention, Pataki would support an open convention. In that case, the nominee would be up in the air. He explained, “In all likelihood in my view it will be someone in the race and probably one of the last three. But I don’t think it’s inconceivable that someone could catch the imagination of the delegates at the convention.”
