NeverTrumpers have had a lot of media attention lately. Most of this is editorials, not news, or, if news, it is simply recounting the latest chattering. Nevertheless, some recent nattering about Nevers was notable.
First up, there was a rash of Leftists pleading with Nevers to stay the course. They think the GOP is much better on account of the Nevers providing a drag anchor to impede conservatives’ progress. Here are two examples:

He is really glum, realizing how Never-ism is a spent force and will win no traction with conservatives in 2020:
NeverTrumpers won’t be able to make the argument that Trump is a liberal anyway and thus there’s not much cost in refusing to support him.

Rush Limbaugh spoke to the Media Research Center and defended himself against carping by Nevers:

In the meantime, Trump is making real progress to advance the conservative cause.
Go, Trump, go!
