Evan McMullin Tag

Evan McMullin ran for president in 2016. He failed, of course. But in running, he gave Never Trump conservatives who couldn't stomach pulling the lever (or pushing the button, these days) for Donald Trump an out; someone they could feel good about voting for, without forfeiting their vote entirely.

Evan McMullin exploded onto the 2016 presidential election scene as an Independent with a message of conservative values and Reagan-esque ideals.  He didn't make a blip on the radar, and following President Trump's election has turned his sour grapes into a #NeverTrump box of sickly-sweet wine that reeks of desperation and, worse, of self-aggrandizement. To top off his head-spinning fall from grace, McMullin owes nearly $670,000 for his failed presidential campaign.
