Never Trump super-PAC: Trump can still be stopped after Tuesday races

The biggest anti-Trump super-PAC says it expects Donald Trump will win all five Republican “Acela primary” states, but the group claims it can still topple the billionaire even if he wins 100 percent of the delegates on Tuesday night.

Our Principles PAC, a group funded by conservative billionaires including the Ricketts family, which owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team, sent out a memo early Tuesday evening preempting a bad night for the Never Trump forces.
 
{mosads}”Just as we anticipated with New York, we expect Donald Trump to carry all five states in play tonight,” said Katie Packer, chairwoman of Our Principles PAC, which has already spent more than $16 million opposing Trump. 
 
“He has polled strongly in these states for months, and neither Our Principles PAC nor the Cruz and Kasich efforts have invested resources in trying to win statewide anywhere tonight.”
 
But Our Principles PAC claims its plan to stop Trump does not hinge on tonight’s results. 
 
“While we hope to deprive him of a handful of delegates tonight, the path to the nomination does not hinge on any of today’s outcomes and that is why our resource allocation has been limited,” Packer said in the memo.
 
“If Trump were to win ALL the committed delegates at stake in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Connecticut tonight as well as the majority of delegates in Rhode Island, this would have no meaningful impact on his nearly impossible path to 1,237. 
 
“April 19 and 26 have always been identified as tough dates for our efforts–tonight’s results are neither surprising nor decisive.”
