“I think Ted Cruz did a good job in the debate tonight, but from the perspective of my 50+ years in conservative politics at the national level, it is clear that only two things can stop Donald Trump now: Trump himself or a united conservative movement."
Commenting on tonight's Republican presidential debate ConservativeHQ.com Chairman Richard A. Viguerie said, “I think Ted Cruz did a good job in the debate tonight, but from the perspective of my 50+ years in conservative politics at the national level, it is clear that only two things can stop Donald Trump now: Trump himself or a united conservative movement.
“First, Donald Trump is perfectly capable of destroying his own campaign or at last doing serious damage to his prospects by not being presidential in his rhetoric or actions. But so far his childish bickering and other un-Presidential actions (including comments that indicate he could not only be irresponsible, but dangerous to conservative ideas of constitutional liberty) have not taken the wind out of his sails.
“The establishment media has failed to expose Trump’s past business dealings, lifestyle, bizarre statements, and liberal Democratic ideas -- and had they become better known earlier, they would have unmasked Trump for the Big Government anti-conservative that he is. “
As it stands now, only conservative leaders and grassroots conservatives have credibility with the voters.
“The Washington D.C. Establishment, including Democrats, Republicans and the establishment media, lack credibility with Republican votes to halt the rise of Trump even as he threatens their power and control. In fact, each time the establishment (especially the establishment media) attacks Trump, it drives his support higher. Only the conservative movement has the credibility to attack and define Trump.
“Conservatives at the national, state and local levels have a responsibility in the remaining Republican primaries to stop Donald Trump by exposing his anti-conservative record.”
