The report states there were former elected Republicans on the call, as well as ex-officials from the Republican administrations of the past four decades. The as-yet-unnamed party would reportedly run on a platform of “principled conservatism,” and would field its own candidates in some races and endorse center-right Republicans or Democrats in others.
Evan McMullin, former chief policy director for the House Republican Conference, said he co-hosted the call after he and other former GOP officials decided that they could no longer tolerate Trump’s continued grip on the party. Asked about the tentative plans, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said: “These losers left the Republican Party when they voted for Joe Biden.”
