Scroll down for video from today's radio show where he discussed this story.
Had a ton of really interesting off the record conversations today.
The last one right after the tv show was a bit disheartening. It was a briefing on the GOP 2016 field.
Here is what the candidate will face.
Many will run, but each will need to raise $250 million just for the primary. $750m in the general.
How many will be lost there?
Next hurdle, they changed the primary system so you can't just do well in Iowa. You will need to run in many states at once.
Higher thresholds at the debates. They want a smaller field.
How many voices left unheard?
You need to have a pathway to 35% Hispanic support or your out. Cubans and Hispanics don't group together.
Who is left?
Those briefing me say:
Wow. Who do you vote for? Who do you campaign for? I spoke to two BIG libertarians today. Huge SV movers. They are shockingly not on the rand wagon as they don't understand his POV. ( opposite problems from some of my less libertarian friends)
This is not good. 3 progressives and a guy I really "want to trust."
Hillary on the left. Prediction? They said Hillary, as she is now 17 points ahead of all of these guys.
This stinks but it is only one group of political advisors. I hope they are wrong on all of it.
What do you do?
We also spoke about congress and the senate. I wish I could meet with the freedom caucus. I don't want to tell them what to say, just introduce them to some suggestions on how to say it. Not that I am taking my own medicine. smile emoticon.
If people in power just could open their minds and understand, really deeply understand the changes that are coming maybe we could change the course and begin to come together. But they don't listen to the people, they hire the same retred experts.
I just heard my friend Rick Perry just hired his campaign director. His last job was consulting Mitt. The job before that? He ran the campaign for McCain!
