With John Kasich staying in the presidential race despite having a statistical impossibility to win the nomination, it appears that the Republican presidential nominee will be chosen at the GOP convention instead of by the will of the voters.
Kasich will continue to steal delegates from Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, all but assuring that no candidate will get the 1,237 delegates to win the nomination outright.
That scenario is exactly what the Republican establishment is hoping for. If it goes to the convention, they get to handpick who they want to be the representative of the party in the general election. According to Rush Limbaugh, he knows exactly who the establishment has in mind for the job, and it isn’t Kasich.
“Kasich doesn’t have a prayer of becoming the nominee,” Limbaugh said. “He doesn’t have a prayer. If John Kasich thinks he’s gonna be the nominee in a contested convention, he’s got another thing coming.”
“I’m here to tell you Jeb Bush is gonna be the nominee. That’s what they’re gonna do. That’s what they’ve always wanted,” Limbaugh continued. “And Jeb himself said back on December 14th of 2014 when this whole process started Jeb said that his strategy was to lose the primaries and win the nomination.”
Do you think Rush is right?
