Several erstwhile Republicans are descending on Philadelphia this weekend for a mini-convention to kick off what they hope can be a politically and financially viable third party, Politico reported.
Their motivation for breaking from the party — President Donald Trump. Their model — Alaska Gov. Bill Walker, who left the GOP and won as an independent in 2014 with a Democrat as lieutenant governor.
"Those that are running as independent have to work a little harder," Walker told Politico. We have to be a little bit more creative and figure out how to get it done."
