would have to be someone who didn't run. This is a fairly good list - which I think I posted before: Paul Ryan - works for the Romney establishment and cool with Kasich Mike Lee - a more palatable version of Cruz Nikki Haley - if they go for the "young face that looks good" gambit Mike Pence - thought about running but there was no more room in the clown car, governors tend to win Pat McCory - a dark horse but N.C. is "in play" so they might surprise us. My guess, they'll talk a lot about Ryan and the conservatives will push back and it'll be Pence. If it ever came to that sort of wide open deal making. Kasich could support either, the Cruz folks would settle for him, and that combined would outvote the Trump loyalists.
