RNC: Trump Won't Run as Third Party

The chairman of the Republican National Committee claims he isn't worried about Donald Trump running as a third-party candidate in the general election should he not win the GOP nomination. Reince Priebus told the Today show that the speculation over whether Trump will abandon party lines doesn't have basis. "I don't see that happening," he said, adding that: "if Hillary Clinton is going to get beat, she has to get beat by a Republican." Priebus said the crowded field—there are currently 16 Republican candidates—will make for a stronger race.
