Trump has until Sept. 30 in SC to rule out third-party run

WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump has until Sept. 30 to pledge to rule out a third party run if he intends to appear on the South Carolina primary ballot.

The language on the state’s 2016 presidential primary filing form asks candidates to pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee for president.

Other states are considering adding similar language.

Trump has repeatedly refused to rule out staying in the race if he fails to become the Republican nominee.

He says he prefers to run as a Republican but that the threat to make a third-party run gives him leverage against the party establishment.

Many believe that would all-but-guarantee a win for Democrats in the general election.
