House Republicans React Cautiously To Idea of Trump as GOP Nominee
Politico – Many of them are still in shock, and some of the chattiest of them won’t answer their telephones. But slowly, Hill Republicans are coming to grips with a Donald Trump-driven Republican Party, and they are already strategizing how to navigate it.
There have been informal conversations between figures in Trump’s universe and top House Republicans, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the talks. Senior party officials don’t expect the House GOP to fully embrace their party’s nominee, but instead concentrate on Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) agenda, which stands in sharp contrast to Trump’s sometimes harsh policy platform.
