Perhaps the most prominent and respected voice in the conservative Republican Party to open the door for a delegate revolt at the GOP convention in July has spoken out (Sorry, Paul Ryan ) about leaving bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump at the alter, leaving him to waller in self-pity.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who happens to be a delegate for the Republican Party Convention, not only said that he would be voting for Texas Senator Ted Cruz , but said that delegates at the convention should be free to vote their conscience — in other words — not for the “presumptive” GOP nominee, New York liberal Donald Trump.

Following a groundbreaking event celebrating a new factory opening in Wisconsin, Scott Walker was asked to comment on Speaker Paul Ryan’s comments on Sunday that GOP delegates should “vote their conscience.”

Walker responded:

“I think his comments are legitimate. I think historically, not just this year, delegates are and should be able to vote the way they see fit. … We’ll see how things go between now and the convention as to what the next steps are. I’m not going to speculate now only because you all know the situation may change by this afternoon, let alone between now and the convention.”

As we previously reported, on a conference call on Sunday, which is said to have included approximately 1,000 Republicans nationwide, several hundred GOP delegates are planning a revolt against Trump, and to select a unifying candidate who can actually defeat Hillary Clinton.
