GOP Donors Call for Sidelining Donald Trump

At least one top Republican donor wants the party to keep Donald Trump from the debate stage saying, “Someone in the party ought to start some sort of petition saying, ‘If Trump’s going to be on the stage, I’m not going to be on there with him.’ The comments come in the wake of a letter sent by Wyoming-based investor Foster Friess, another top GOP donor, calling for candidates to stay on the “civility reservation.” According to the report, Friess cited the support of Las Vegas-based casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and Todd Ricketts, the co-owner of the Chicago Cubs. Ricketts is backing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in the primary; Adelson remains officially neutral.
