Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump arrives to give a victory speech after the Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Illinois and Missouri primary elections during a news conference held at his Mar-A-Lago Club, in Palm Beach, Florida March 15, 2016.


A group of prominent conservative activists and operatives from across the country gathered Thursday morning to discuss building a conservative “unity ticket” to stop Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump from winning the GOP nomination. The group also examined the plausibility of a third-party candidacy should Trump become the nominee.Led by conservative radio host and blogger Erick Erickson, South Dakota businessman Bob Fischer and President George W. Bush’s conservative liaison Bill Wichterman, the couple dozen activist huddled at The Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C. for several hours and came to the conclusion that a “real conservative” needs to be the next president and Trump does not fit that description.
