George Will Resigns from Republican Party

Republicans should "save their party by not aiding its nominee."


Conservative columnist and Fox News contributor George Will says that he doesn't know who he will vote for for President. "But I know who I will not be voting for--Donald Trump.

Will has left the Republican Party due to Donald Trump's presumptive nomination for president.

Will, whose column is published by The Washington Post, told that news paper Saturday that he changed his Maryland voter registration from Republican to "unaffiliated" earlier this month after House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he would vote for the real estate mogul.

The website PJ Media reported that Will discussed his decision during an event Friday for the conservative group the Federalist Society.

"This is not my party," Will said in a speech.

Will has been a persistent critic of Trump and recently wrote a column urging Republican donors to "save their party by not aiding its nominee."

PJ Media reported that Will acknowledged Friday that it was a "little too late" to draft an alternative candidate to Trump, but told GOP voters to "make sure [Trump] loses. Grit [your] teeth for four years and win the White House."
