Carlos Lopez-Cantera doubts he could support Donald Trump as his party's nominee



From the Wall Street Jourrnal:

“I don’t think I could,” said Florida Lt. Gov. and U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Lopez-Cantera, when asked if he could support Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee.

This is getting awkward. Ron DeSantis refuses to comment on Trump, although one of his benefactors, the Club for Growth, has threatened to withold support from anyone backing Trump.

David Jolly has twisted himself into a pretzel - first denouncing Trump and calling on him to drop out, then suggesting he might support him over Rubio in the Florida primary, and finally deciding to stay neutral.

Carlos Beruff, meanwhile, seems to be positioning himself as the Florida senate race's Trump - a blunting talking outsider businessman.
