BREAKING?

I’ll believe it when I see it.

UPDATE: Word is it’s Evan Mcmullen, Chief Policy Director for the House Republican Conference.

More to come.

MORE:

Key players in GOP’s anti-Trump movement are preparing to launch an independent presidential campaign for Evan McMullin — a CIA veteran and the chief policy director of the House Republican conference — sources close to the effort told BuzzFeed News.

Veteran Republican strategist Rick Wilson, a Florida-based media consultant and outspoken Trump critic, is expected to be involved in McMullin’s campaign. Sources said Wilson was in Washington on Sunday meeting with members of McMullin’s prospective campaign — which includes some who were involved in a group called Better for America, which has been pushing an independent presidential bid.

McMullin did not immediately respond to requests for comment from BuzzFeed News.

AND A REMINDER:

“Quixotic” doesn’t even begin to describe this effort, although I suspect the real goal is to protect the GOP brand from Trumpism.
