Stars Aligning for Trump: Priebus calls out Never Trump movement, calls for GOP unity

The Never Trump Movement stops dead in its tracks when Ted Cruz gives up the ghost and says enough is enough. 
Cruz is still a young man and could run again for president in the future.  But, he has to realize now is not his time, stop being selfish, and do what’s best and help the GOP beat Hillary with Trump as the nominee.   

The Hill reports Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on Friday called for Republicans to unite ahead of the presidential election, striking back against the Never Trump movement. 

“It is essential to victory in November that we all support our candidate,” Priebus said at the RNC’s spring meeting in Hollywood, Fla. 

 “This goes for everyone, whether you’re a county party chairman, an RNC member, or a presidential candidate. Politics is a team sport, and we can’t win unless we rally around whoever becomes our nominee,” he added, drawing applause from the audience. 

“They’re trying out for our team. No one is forcing them to wear our jersey. We expect our candidates to support our party and our eventual nominee.” 
The comments seemed pointed at the growing movement of conservatives who insist they won’t back Donald Trump if he’s the GOP nominee.

Priebus also promised that the nominating process at July's Republican National Convention in Cleveland would be “fair, democratic and transparent,” and that the GOP would not give the nomination to anyone who does not secure a majority of delegates.

“As our nomination process goes on, we are preparing for all possible scenarios. We might have a nominee by July. Or we might have a nominee through the balloting process at the convention,” he said.

People like Eric Erickson and Glenn beck need to take one for the team, step off and fall in line if they want to salvage their shrinking following.  The same goes for Mark Levin who’s probably taken the biggest credibility hit all them all.
