What about Savior Ben Sasse?
Mitt Romney announced today he was ending his search for a third party “conservative” to take on Donald Trump and hand the election to Hillary Clinton.
Just heartbroken! Romney's been such a clutch player in the past. I expected him to come through when we needed him: pic.twitter.com/RRYVmtnqUL

Mitt Romney won’t launch a third-party presidential campaign of his own and has stopped trying to recruit somebody else to do it.
The 2012 Republican nominee had attempted to recruit a challenger to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But prospects like Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said no, and Romney is now dropping his efforts, a source familiar with Romney’s thinking told CNN. The news was first reported by Yahoo News.
It’s the latest blow to the “Never Trump” movement — a group of conservatives led by Romney, blogger Erick Erickson and The Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol — to find an alternative to Trump.
