Via Red Phillips:
Here is an Independent Political Report post on 3 minor party candidates, including one CP candidate? I am not familiar with the CP candidate, and his candidacy appears to be Quixotic in nature. That’s not the interesting part of the article. Of interest is this comment by Trent Hill, who teases us that a “big name” candidate that the CP has been courting my be about to make the move. I know Trent Hill. If he says he has inside intel, he has inside intel. It’s not a done deal, but it’s possible. There is some speculation about who it might be below Trent’s comment. Any guesses? Keep in mind that “big name” is by CP standards.
The comment from Trent is that the unnamed potential candidate is someone “they’ve been flirting with for a couple years now.”
Subsequent comments from Trent eliminated the following guesses:
John Hostettler (Trent said this was a “really good guess,” perhaps implying that the person in question is a former member of Congress)
Some other guesses were thrown out in the prior thread, but Trent has not responded there again yet.
Add your guesses in this thread or the prior one.
