[Blind Gossip] The sooner a Presidential Candidate can get others in the race to quit, the sooner they can consolidate their base and lock in the nomination.
How do you get someone else to quit? Well, one way is to offer them an incentive. You could offer them money or the promise of a powerful position. That is what one camp is considering offering another candidate. How about a Vice Presidency… or a seat on the Supreme Court?
This would be an “exploding” offer. The Second Candidate would have to drop out of the race AND throw his support behind the First Candidate by a specific date… or the offer would be null and void and will not be offered again.
