Former top Romney aide Katie Packer founded the billionaire funded anti-Trump “Our Principles PAC” earlier this year. The PAC has paid for over $16 million in ads against Donald Trump already this year. The group also admitted that they were working to steer Republican delegates away from Donald Trump. OPP is also working in states/districts with unbound delegates to ensure those delegates are not supporting Trump on a first ballot
OPP is the leading #NeverTrump Super PAC.
There are at least 4 anti-Trump Super PACs.
Tomorrow Katie Packer will be speaking to Republican Party leaders behind closed doors at their spring meeting in Florida.
Packer spoke with The Hill on Thursday.
She is outrageous!… And admits her goal is to prevent Trump from winning 1,237 delegates.
The Hill reported:
The biggest “Never Trump” super-PAC is heading to the Republican National Committee’s spring meeting in Florida this week to make personal pitches to RNC members not to support Donald Trump at a contested convention.
Katie Packer, who chairs Our Principles PAC, a conservative super-PAC that has already spent some $16 million opposing Trump, told The Hill in a Facebook Live conversation that she will fly to Florida on Thursday evening to prepare for her Friday pitch.
Packer said she will lay out to the RNC members a multifaceted argument for why Trump should not be the Republican Party’s standard-bearer.
“He is not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination. … He’s probably not even a Republican,” Packer said. “He’s slammed Ronald Reagan, he’s slammed George W. Bush” and has held liberal positions on issues such as abortion, guns and healthcare policy.
Packer said she plans to hold private one-on-one meetings with RNC members and will “communicate to them that there is very much a path for this to be an open convention.
“And you as leaders have an obligation to allow that to happen and to allow the delegates to have a candidate that they feel comfortable with.”
