Let’s put another puzzle piece in place re: a wild scenario of how the GOP could prevail even if Trump runs as a 3rd party candidate …
What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 electoral votes?
According to the Electoral College web site …
If no candidate receives a majority of electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most electoral votes. Each State delegation has one vote.
The Senate would elect the Vice President from the 2 Vice Presidential candidates with the most electoral votes, with each Senator casting one vote for Vice President.
Note that for President, each state gets one vote in the House … not each rep. So a majority of each state’s reps determine the state’s vote.
A GOP-majority in a House-elect would certainly pick the establishment GOP candidate …
See where I’m heading with this?
Tomorrow: the wild scenario that nobody is talking about.
