And then there’s this…
Mitt’s niece Ronna Romney McDaniel says she’ll support Trump if he is the nominee.
The niece of 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wishes her uncle was in the White House, but vows she’ll support Donald Trump – the candidate Romney publicly attacked in a brutal takedown speech last week.
In an interview by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in Detroit on Tuesday night – where Trump sailed to victory in the state’s primary – Ronna Romney McDaniel said she believes the real estate billionaire is “committed to staying in the [Republican] party.”
McDaniel said that rallies she’s attended for Trump in Michigan are “not a traditional Republican crowd,” but that she’s “not surprised” he won the state handily.
“If he’s our nominee, I’m going to support him,” she declared.
She also said her uncle is not an option for the party’s nominee if there is a contested GOP convention this summer.
