Never Trump challengers fizzle in Iowa voting

Byron York, Washington Examiner

As good as the result was for the Trump team, it was, at best, a discouraging outcome for the Never Trump challenge. In late January, Bill Kristol pleaded on Twitter, "Iowa Republicans: Caucus for Joe Walsh or Bill Weld or uncommitted. You're better than Donald Trump. Don't stoop to support this man so unworthy of your support." Iowa Republicans ignored the entreaty, and others that came before it. Now, the campaign is on to New Hampshire. As in Iowa, Trump has planned a rally in the state before the primary. Again, there will be surrogates, and again, there will be stepped-up online campaigning. The result could be another difficult night for the quixotic Republican effort to stop the president.
