Erick Erickson continues with his #NeverTrump nonsense. This shouldn't really surprise anybody who has mildly followed Mr. Erickson on both the radio and when he was CEO of Redstate.com.
Now back when I discovered that Ben Shapiro's employers gave 15 million dollars to a Cruz Super PAC, a rather interesting thought came into my mind. What if Shapiro is not the only one?

I'm guessing not to happy about it. Hence the #NeverTrump campaign.
One Last Note
I will be fishing tomorrow on the Black River just south of Carthage, New York. So look forward to that article, which should be posted sometime late tomorrow.
