Bill Kristol's Mission to Find Donald Trump Alternative Challenged

RNC Chair Reince Priebus called the effort a "suicide mission"

There may be challenges surrounding the potential third party candidacy of conservative writer David French, according to NBC News. 

French, a writer at conservative outlet National Review, conservative lawyer and Iraq War veteran, was recruited by Bill Kristol, the Weekly Standard’s editor and leader in the “Stop Trump” movement. 

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called the effort a "suicide mission" on Thursday, the same day House Speaker Paul Ryan said he will vote for Trump in the general election in November. 

Conservative radio host Erick Erickson dismissed the third party effort on his website The Resurgent. Trump critic Mitt Romney’s nice tweets calling French “honorable, intelligent and patriotic” were far from an endorsement.
