Yesterday Michigan GOP Rep. Thaddeus McCotter spoke out against having Republican leaders choose the presidential nominee at a brokered convention:
Having unsuccessfully competed against all of the candidates for our party's nomination for President of the United States, I attest to the mettle of the remaining contenders; and aver that at the end of this brutal primary process - potentially including a convention fight - our GOP nominee must be Mitt, Rick, Newt or Ron.
McCotter concludes, "A GOP that distrusts its primary voters will be distrusted by general election voters - and rightly so." A Gallup/USA Today poll of Republican and GOP-leaning independent voters found that 66 percent oppose a brokered convention.
